GOLDEN TICKET PART II: 3 MORE STATES THAT SHOULD BE PART OF YOUR TRAVEL NURSING PLANS
We pride ourselves on being a resource for you in your travel nursing adventures. What good would we be if we didn’t respond to your questions immediately? Case in point, our post today. You wanted to learn more about what there is to do away from work in several states we didn’t mention in our previous blog.
We’re here to provide that. We’ve gone coast to coast to find you the best things to do in the states you requested and we’ll be covering them over the next two blogs. So let’s get started by heading north. We mean waaay north.
* Alaska. Not everyone gets to see Alaska in their lifetime, and accepting a travel assignment up here would give you the opportunity to explore the nation’s largest state on your terms. The natural wildlife you’ll find in Alaska isn’t matched anywhere else and you can get back to nature through a day cruise, flightseeing tour or glacial excursion. There are even specific tours if bears, moose or whales are your target. And if you’re a little more hands-on with your nature activities, try your luck at dogsledding, kayaking or hiking, Alaska style. We’ll let you learn what that means when you get there.
* Maine. The setting for most of Stephen King’s works, Maine will have you wowing rather than screaming. Like Alaska, Maine offers its own natural scenic beauty, and walking Marginal Way in Ogunquit is a good way to savor it all. Kennebunkport is a popular destination for tourists and world leaders alike, and you simply can’t pass up the chance to enjoy Maine’s local cuisine. They know their shellfish in Maine and they know it well.
* Illinois. We could write an entire blog on things to do in Chicago. Here’s a link to some. For today, we’re going to focus on activities outside the Windy City, starting with a visit to Abraham Lincoln’s house in Springfield. From there, the Morton Arboretum boasts all the scenic beauty and hiking trails you could ever want, and the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio simply must be seen to be believed.
That’s our list for today. If you have other states you’d like to learn more about, please let us know.
