Kentucky is the premier location for a therapist in any specialty to choose on a brilliant thirteen week travel assignment. Based on the Iroquois Indian word “Ken-tah-ten,” meaning “land of tomorrow”, Kentucky really lives up to its name in terms of opportunity for physical therapists, speech language pathologists, physical therapy assistants, occupational therapists, etc. The “Bluegrass State” features beautiful rolling hills to explore, bourbon distilleries to tour, live folk music to jam to, rustic historical roots to celebrate, and eclectic culture to captivate any personality.
Relax, explore, or enjoy the outdoors in Kentucky. The wildlife include elk, Goldfinch, wildcats, bald eagles, wild turkey, and bison. Enjoy hiking among the dense foliage, mountain biking, sight-seeing, and fishing in the 12.4 million acres of forest in the state. Observe “America’s Native Spirit”, Bourbon, on the Kentucky Bourbon trail to visit 6 of the state’s finest distilleries. Or, have a night out in Louisville, Lexington, or Covington to create some ever lasting memories and meet some Kentucky-native characters. Immerse yourself in the culinary creativity found here by chowing down on BBQ, nostaligic Kentucky burgoo, or of course the stereotypical but scrumptious fried chicken.
On a travel therapy assignment to Kentucky, wander off the beaten path and get lost in some unconventional activities. Take this chance to see some bizarre roadside attractions found only in the bluegrass state. Check out the Oscar Getz Museum of Whiskey History to gain fruitful knowledge of the spirit, visit the world’s largest baseball bat the the Louisville Slugger Museum, or stop by the Hillbilly Garden where you can view folk art, gags, 3,000 toys, and six trains. Check out a food festival that you’ll never forget like the Beer Cheese Festival, 33rd Annual Green River Catfish Festival, or 23rd Annual Mountain Mushroom Festival. Get your cook-off on and partake in some of the fair’s intriguing festivities while you’re there
