Travel Therapy Destinations: Decide Where to Go Next With Our Mini State Guides

At first, when you’re an SLP, OT or PT, you’ll want to go to Hawaii, California, or Florida. We get that! Destinations such as these are stellar places for travel therapy assignments. More than likely, you’ll be able to hit up your wish list of cities but then what? Maybe there’s no availability of jobs in San Francisco when you’re ready to leave on assignment. Your recruiter will probably offer you assignments in other cities. This is a good thing! So many of our travel therapists tell us that their most memorable assignments were in cities and states they never thought they’d end up.

Start exploring all that the U.S. has to offer! That’s the point of travel therapy, right? Check out our guides that cover everything from roadside attractions, lessons you’ll learn, foods you’ll eat, and tourist spots you’ll love even as a short-term resident.
