The 5 top states for allied travel imaging jobs
Here are the five states with the most options for travel imaging professionals in 2021:
California is typically divided into two major regions based on population and geography: Southern California and Northern California. Both are diverse and highly desirable, with dramatic coastlines and major cities. But there are distinct amenities in each region for allied travelers.
Southern California is home to world-famous beaches and entertainment attractions, gorgeous communities with canyons and rolling hills, exciting cities like Los Angeles, San Diego, and Santa Barbara, and arguably the best weather in the nation. Some of the top travel destinations include Disneyland, Hollywood, Universal Studios, Sea World, Venice Beach, and dozens of beach towns with lots of character. In Southern California, you can ski the slopes of Big Bear Mountain in the morning and then enjoy an afternoon swim in the Pacific — all on the same day.
Northern California is a favorite destination for allied travelers who enjoy hiking, national parks, and a more open and rustic feel. However, you'll still have the conveniences of major cities, such as San Francisco, San Jose and Sacramento. Northern California is populated by farmland and significant natural attractions, such as Yosemite National Park, Lake Tahoe, the Sierra Nevada Mountains, and the Redwood and Sequoia National Parks, home to the tallest trees on earth.
Texas is famous for fantastic barbecue, music, dramatically diverse landscapes, cowboys, rodeos, and dude ranches. Its capital city, culturally diverse Austin, offers a thriving music scene, museums, and exciting nightlife. Other world-class Texas cities include Houston, San Antonio, Dallas, and Fort Worth. All offer world-class shopping, lively downtowns, and unique cuisine.
If you're on assignment near Houston, you must visit NASA's Johnson Space Center, one of the only places in the world you can touch a moon rock and watch astronauts train. When visiting, take your passport to receive a commemorative stamp.
If you're an American history buff or enjoy the magnificence of New England fall foliage, then Massachusetts needs to be on your allied assignment bucket list. Like California, Massachusetts is often thought of in two sections as the state becomes more rural the farther you travel from Boston. So, let's start in Eastern Massachusetts and one of the nation's greatest cities.
Boston is historically rich, providing myriad opportunities to explore some of the most significant events in our nation's development. Walk the Freedom Trail to see Boston Common, the Old South Meeting House, Faneuil Hall, the Old North Church, Paul Revere's home, the site of the Boston Massacre, and much more. Boston also provides world-class shopping, Quincy Market, a die-hard sports fan base, and numerous beaches. Fall foliage in Western Massachusetts is breathtaking. Allied travelers will find major cities Springfield and Northampton, numerous colleges and universities, the Berkshire Mountains, and many outdoor adventures.
With more than 1,300 miles of coastline and warm temperatures throughout the year, the Sunshine State is an outdoor lover's paradise. Each region of Florida offers different beach experiences. On the Gulf Coast, you'll witness incredible sunsets. At the laid-back Keys, you'll think you're in the Caribbean. And on some Emerald Coast beaches, you can walk on sugar-white sand.
World-class cities and attractions pepper the state, including Miami, St. Augustine, St. Petersburg, Disney World, and Universal Studios. As an allied traveler in Florida, you'll live where people vacation—with your housing and travel expenses paid.
If you love the water, Florida is for you. Water activities include boating, swimming, and fishing, just for starters. If you love the nightlife, don't miss Miami, where you'll experience fantastic shopping, Art Deco architecture, the Miami Riverwalk, the nearby Everglades, and much more.
Virginia is beautiful in every season. If you love the outdoors, the state has everything you need: beaches, lakes, mountains, rivers, and gorgeous landscapes. The Appalachian Trail is perfect for hikers, and visitors can drive through the Blue Ridge Mountains to enjoy spectacular views. Allied travelers will have access to major ski resorts, white water rafting, rock climbing, and numerous golf courses.
Richmond, Virginia's historic capital city, is a thriving community rich in Southern charm and big-city amenities. The city is centrally located with easy access to the beach or the mountains, and just two hours from Washington, D.C. The area boasts something for everyone with stunning scenery and various events and activities for families and individuals alike.
