Spring Locations to Consider this Year

This article was provided by TruStaff.

Spring is finally here, and that means assignments are in full force. If you haven’t decided where to head next, we’ve created a list of highly suggested areas that could help make up your mind. Whether you like hiking, national parks, hot attractions, the beach, or secluded wooded cabins, the perfect spring assignment is waiting.

Check out these hot spots that should be topping your spring locations to consider this year:

Stop 1: Texas

Like they always say, everything’s bigger in Texas! Including your options on where to travel. Texas has 80 state parks across the entire state, which means lots of options for camping, hiking, fishing, or whatever your outdoor heart desires.

Texas has it all! Want to go to a beach? Got it! A buzzing city? They have MANY! Maybe you’re more of a country and relaxed pace of living person–there’s a small charming Lone Star town with your name on it. Texas is a HOT area for all travelers year-round, but spring in Texas sounds pretty nice to us, and the job options are plentiful.

Stop 2: Maine

Maine is definitely a must-stop for all travelers! The scenery throughout the entire state is stunning. Many travelers suggest making a full road trip just to see its beautiful scenery. It’s highly suggested to get out of the buzzing city life and experience the small towns in Maine, especially along the coast.

Obviously, Maine is known for its dining – and specifically for lobster! What better chance to find the best seafood stop or find a great small local business to support. April and May are peak whale-watching months, and we hear Maine’s coast has prime viewing to see these amazing creatures come to the surface. Truly a must-see adventure!

Stop 3: Arizona

Arizona is known for its deserts and hiking but also its sweltering weather. So why not avoid the mid-summer 100+ temps and adventure on in before the heat waves come through?

The state has many breath-taking views through many parks and hiking trails, and this alone makes the trip worth it. The Grand Canyon National Park is a MUST for any traveler! And for any baseball fans – you already know Arizona is the place to be for Spring Training.

Stop 4: North Carolina

North Carolina is a highly requested location for almost every traveler. It really has it all! The southern warmth, beaches, greenery, and much more. They have many beaches along the coast where you can hang out in the sand, surf, paddleboard, or even boat!

Maybe you’re more into the greener side of NC, with beautiful mountain views and hiking trails, including the Pisgah National Forest, which has over 250 waterfalls! We also hear the brewery and winery scene in NC is top-tier if that’s what floats your boat!

All four of these states have so much to see and do and a ton of available jobs for you to choose from. No matter your area of specialty, you’ll be able to start planning your next few months of work and play.

Wherever you end up this spring, make sure you enjoy some amazing adventures!
