Anyone have any tips on good cities to pick up assignments in? I'm a skier and outdoorsy person, so I'm looking into Denver, Salt Lake City, Montana, Wyoming, and Idaho. I'm looking for a place that has a good balance of activities to keep my boyfriend and I entertained and having fun on our days off. Has anyone traveled here and can offer some insight on what it is like to travel to any of these cities/states? I'm also looking into Hawaii. Any tips/info/advice on what it's like to live in these places is much appreciated! :)

Montana has a variety of activites..i worked six months in western mt last tear..hawaii was not a great paying but fun place. I'm currently in Washington which is close to several ski places..parks..and multiple activites..you can pm me!

I'm a Utah local (SLC). I just turned down two travel jobs there because I got something somewhere else, but it's a friendly city and the skiing, no matter where you live in the valley, is never more than 25 minutes away. The hospitals there are all pretty good, I've worked at most of them (ER). Somewhat might chime in and say HCA (St. Marks) is bad because it's HCA, but it's not bad in SLC. I worked there for quite a while.

Anyway, Utah is a realistic travel goal, and a great place. 4 hours from Moab, some of the best skiing in the country, incredible mountain biking, etc, etc.

Well i would say that what you have posted is surely a way for working impressively and at the same time thinking of how something goes for us is necessary.

This is how i feel and at the same time it goes ahead for me when i stick to discussing these things and getting the right idea.

Check out the RENO and Carson City Nevada area. Close to the slopes, lots of other things to do and Nevada is Tax Friendly.

It's only "tax friendly" if your home state (tax home) has zero income tax. Otherwise, you're still going to pay income tax.

Good point trackhead. But sure nice not to have the hassle to file another state return.
