So you’ve done it. You have a flexible job where you can work from the road, or maybe you are using your work-from-home job to give you the time freedom you’ve been wanting. Congratulations!
Now, where do you want to go?
Your decision depends on what you like to do when you travel! Do you like to visit natural wonders, cruise the nightlife of a big city, or visit important historical place?
Is it the thrill of the outdoors that calls you? The flashing lights of a Broadway show? Or is it the drop of a roller coaster?
Ultimately, only you can decide where you are going to travel, but here’s a quick list for starters!
(Don’t have a flexible job yet? Check out our career training to help you get there!)
With vistas spanning over 277 miles, the Grand Canyon is a must-see for every traveler. At its deepest point, the Grand Canyon is one mile from cliff edge to valley floor. The South Rim is the most popular area of the park if you are looking for moderate hikes and stunning vistas, and is home to one of the park’s most visited trails—a six-mile one-way named Bright Angel Trail. Lodging is in abundance, which means WIFI for the work-at-home traveler. If you want to take a break from work (and civilization) and spend more time in the wilderness, then you should visit the North Rim, which is relatively undeveloped.
New York City
The city that never sleeps offers much to the tourist looking for adventure and entertainment. From Broadway shows to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, just about everyone can find some fun in New York City. Or, if you’re a history buff, you might enjoy seeing many of the historical places there, including Federal Hall, the Brooklyn Bridge, or Trinity Church. If you find yourself craving some more natural spaces, take a walk through Central Park or rent a yacht to tour the Hudson River. Don’t forget to visit the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State building!
For a real workcation, visiting Orlando, Florida means access to amusement parks, beaches, and some beautiful weather. Relax poolside at a resort while you finish your work for the day, or spend a day riding coasters at Universal Orlando. Disney World is just around the corner, and if you are looking for a day trip Cocoa Beach and NASA’s Cape Canaveral are only an hour’s drive from city center.
While Las Vegas is the hot spot for casinos, it holds many treasures that the non-gambler would be interested in. Luxury spas, high-end shopping, and shows (Cirque de Soleil, Blue Man Group, Donny and Marie Osmond, Celine Dion). The diversity of architecture and themed hotels makes it a great place just to walk around and you won’t want to miss the Bellagio fountain. There are even places for the outdoor enthusiast to visit! Red Rock Canyon and the Hoover Dam are a must-see.
If you think that the only thing to see in Washington D.C. is a bunch of old buildings, you are wrong. Washington D.C. boasts some incredible monuments and memorials, from the 555-foot-tall Washington Monument to the National World War II Memorial, you can see some incredible tributes to the nation’s people. There are a plethora of museums in D.C. housing the Declaration of Independence, historical aircraft, and relics of American culture. When you’re done sightseeing through history, you can tour art galleries or enjoy the city’s nightlife.
