The Lone Star State may not be what comes to your mind first as a travel destination, but Texas offers some of the country’s most diverse attractions.

If you’re a Fixer Upper fan, a job in Waco will put you in close proximity to Magnolia Market, and Waco is also home to the Dr. Pepper museum.

Finally, Houston offers Space Center Houston and the Astrodome, while Dallas has the Sixth Floor Museum in memory of President John F. Kennedy. Check out open emergency medicine jobs in Texas to explore even more of this state.
