This winter is dedicated to some serious rest and relaxation after the year we have all endured, especially healthcare heroes. With stay-at-home orders being put in place across the United States, wouldn’t it be nice to cozy up on the couch with the fire rolling and snow slowly falling just outdoors in the cold? Winter assignments in the colder climates are the way to go this year with needs being in higher demand. Check out these winter destinations for your next travel assignment to enjoy some serious R&R.

Anchorage, Alaska

Located in the southern area of the state, Anchorage is a wildlife lover’s dream. From wilderness and Glacier experiences just a 30-minute drive away to the beautiful downtown area, Anchorage is one of the largest cities in the United States with plenty to do. Take the Alyeska Aerial Tram for beautiful sightseeing at Mt. Alyeska. Or enjoy a sunset city tour that allow you to see moose, sheep, whale, goats and more while taking in breath-taking views and perfect photo ops of Anchorage.

Kalispell, Montana

Kalispell is the perfect place for a winter assignment if you are ready for the great outdoors. Less than an hour from Glacier National Park, there are over 700 miles of trails to explore the abundant wildlife and all its glory. In case you want to start small, Kalispell is home to three of Montana’s state parks. Lone Pine, Flathead Lake and Wild Horse are all in close proximity allowing for the perfect place to clear your head just minutes away.

Tacoma, Washington

Tacoma is home to plenty of parks, botanical gardens, and museums to keep you busy throughout all your free time.
