As the Fourth of July weekend nears, patriotic revelers are set to celebrate throughout all 50 states. For travel nurses, you may be about to experience the Independence Day holiday in a brand new, exciting location — exploration is, after all, one of the major perks of a career in travel nursing, in addition to cultivating your career!
Over at Thrillist, where they just love to make lists that detail all the good, bad, and ugly that America has got going for it, they’re celebrating what they call “America Week” with a post called “The Most Beautiful Place in Each State.” So, no matter where your latest assignment has taken you — from Washington to Florida, from Alabama to Wyoming, and all points in between — they’ve suggested a beautiful site worth feasting your eyes on.
In the post they acknowledge that beauty can mean different things to different people, writing: “In Pennsylvania, it might be a towering skyline. In Nevada, a mountain lake. Every state (and/or Commonwealth!) has its own version of beauty, which is why we polled residents and tourism boards from each to determine what that one must-hit (and must-Instagram) spot is.”
Some of the most beautiful spots in each U.S. state mentioned in the list include:
- Arizona’s Havisu Falls
- California’s Big Sur
- Florida’s Seven Mile Bridge
- Georgia’s Callaway Gardens
- Louisiana’s Atchafalaya Swamp
- Minnesota’s Boundary Waters
- Nevada’s Lake Tahoe
- New York’s Niagara Falls
- Oregon’s Crater Lake
- Utah’s Bryce Canyon National Park
- Wyoming’s Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park
As a Travel Nurse, you’re in a unique position to collect all 50! Let us know in the comments which of these beautiful wonders you’ve seen or have plans to see soon.
Happy Fourth of July weekend, everyone!
