The wide-open landscape and lack of city lights makes Alaska one of the best places to experience the starriest nights, and see the spectacular greenish glow of the great Northern Lights. For the best Aurora viewing, soak in the view on a clear night at the Chena Hot Springs resort in Fairbanks.

Seafood Is Your Favorite Food

If just thinking about fresh, wild-caught king crab, salmon, shrimp, halibut, scallops, snapper or tuna gets your taste buds turning, then you’re ready to head north. Alaska is home to the most pristine fresh and saltwater sources, so fishers have no problem filling their nets. Whether you hit the docks, farmers market or a local dive like The Bamboo Room and Pioneer Bar in Haines, you’re sure to get some of the freshest seafood in the world.

If this sounds like something you’d love to experience, then it’s time to take a look at travel nurse opportunities with Advantage RN and apply for one of the travel nurse jobs in Alaska. Top pay rates, unbelievable outdoor adventures, fresh seafood and the northern lights await you.
