Hot Travel Therapy Locations for Summer

Where will you work this summer? There are a lot of places in the country that make for a beautiful season. Consider these three locations:

Travelers who start an Alaskan contract in early June can enjoy both the Summer Solstice Festival in Anchorage and six to eight weeks of longer daylight. In June and July the sun will stay out for approximately 18 to 19 hours. The list of things to do with those long days is as interesting as it is diverseflight-seeing, ice-climbing, canoeing, horse adventures, dog-sledding, to name a few.
