Travel Nurse Assignments: Live Like a Local – Anchorage

Anchorage, AK

Welcome to Anchorage!

Anchorage is a popular travel nurse destination for a variety of reasons. The majestic natural beauty opens the door to many exciting outdoor activities, continuing to drive traffic to the city as well as boost its travel popularity.

The largest city in Alaska, Anchorage often goes overlooked as the location and weather tend to scare people away. However, many people across the country still choose Anchorage as a travel destination due to the variety of things to experience and unforgettable natural beauty. Here are a few things to check out while you are in Alaska’s gem, but make sure to bring a good jacket with you because of Anchorage’s biting temperatures even in the summer!

Outside the City:

Lake Eklutna

If you are looking for lakes, this one is among the most popular. It’s also a popular spot for fishing, picnics, or a simple walk along this extended piece of scenery. This spot provides a great level of convenience due to its location near the city core as well as possessing an essential thing to an Alaskan experience: space.

Rust’s Flying Service

If you are afraid of airplanes and flying, you won’t be afraid of this one. Mainly because it’s smaller, more private, and especially since it gives you front row seats to some of the most beautiful spots around the city. Slowly gliding over mountain tops and having an aerial view of large beautiful bodies of water creates an experience that is hard to forget.
