I’m not sure if travel is any more popular today than it used to be, but it sure seems like it from looking at what my Facebook friends are up to. Travel is a massive industry because it’s both a leisure activity and a business activity, and that also makes it a very complex industry. People who work in travel need to keep up with the latest news and trends, so they often turn to Northstar Travel Media. They’re a Secaucus, NJ based “business information and marketing solutions provider to the $300 billion U.S. travel, tourism and meetings industries.” It started in 1939 with Hotel & Travel Index, and today Northstar Travel Media reaches more than 1.7 million monthly unique visitors online and 1.1 million people through subscriptions.

Chicago Architecture Foundation Logo

My dad is an architect. I was dragged on all kinds of architectural tours as a kid, and that hasn’t changed now that I’m adult. Whenever my parents come to visit Chicago, we end up spending an afternoon on some sort of architectural expedition. About half the time my dad comes up with a random place that he wants to see, and we drive around looking for it. The rest of the time, we end up doing a more formal tour–usually through the Chicago Architecture Foundation. It’s a Chicago, IL based non-profit organization that is “devoted to celebrating and promoting Chicago as a center of architectural innovation.” It all started in 1966 when community members banded together to save the Glessner House (we already did that tour) from demolition. That eventually led to the founding of the Chicago Architecture Foundation, which was then a founding member of the Association of Architecture Organizations.

I’m always looking for an adventure… as long as it includes fly fishing. Having a hobby that takes me to all kinds of interesting places is awesome, but I realize that many people get their excitement from trying something new. If that sounds like you, take a look at ZOZI. They’re based in San Francisco, CA, and they want “to make everyone’s passions accessible, and most importantly, help you discover new ones.” Whether you’re looking for a better way to spend a weekend without leaving town or you want to travel across the world to get an adrenaline rush, ZOZI offers a ton of options at amazing prices. And if that’s enough, they’ll also give you a deal on some of the gear that you might need for your experience.

Kramerica Industries

Last year I wrote a post on The Human Fund. It was one of our most popular posts ever, and I’ve been looking for similar organizations with job opportunities ever since. This morning I realized that The Human Fund actually has a for-profit wholly owned subsidiary that is worth taking a look at. The company is called Kramerica Industries, and it’s a New York, NY based energy, fashion, food, tourism, and housing conglomerate. All of its future profits will be funneled towards The Human Fund’s mission of “money for the people.” Kramerica Industries has not yet reached profitability, but that’s not unusual for a business that is centered around R&D intensive projects.

Disney Theme Parks and Resorts Logo

You know Disney. You love Disney. Who doesn’t? As a company they’ve stretched way beyond Mickey Mouse, but when it comes to Disney Theme Parks and Resorts, which includes Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, FL and Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, CA, it’s still all about Walt Disney’s imagination. There are few things as exciting to a child as a trip to Disney World or Disneyland, and the same can be said for a lot of adults. If there’s any company that I don’t need to tell you more about, it’s probably this one. What I can tell you is that your friends are going to be insanely jealous when you tell them that you’re going to be a part of the Disney College Program while they’re unlinking paperclips and making copies in some boring internship. You’ll also have something on your résumé that will always be the first topic of conversation. How could someone not ask you about your time at Disney World or Disneyland?

Cultural Tourism DC

Cultural Tourism DC Logo

Being a tourist is fun, even if it makes you feel a little stupid. The only problem with doing touristy things is that you miss out on a lot of what a city has to offer. Major attractions have the resources, reputation, and connections to bring in lots of people, but they often lack the local feel that tourists often seek. Smaller attractions often struggle to get people in the door, despite the fact that they are many times more interesting than their larger counterparts. Cultural Tourism DC is a non-profit organization that is trying to change that in Washington, DC. They aim to “strengthen the image and economy of Washington, DC, neighborhood by neighborhood, by linking more than 200 DC cultural and neighborhood organizations with partners in tourism, hospitality, government, and business.” It’s a perfect idea for a city that is so packed with history and culture that you could probably do the tourist thing every day for a year without running out of things to do.
