Winter is just around the corner and we have the perfect travel assignments for travel nurses of every type. Here, our top picks for this season.
WHO: The Winter Lover WHERE: Milwaukee, Wisconsin (Winter Lover)
WHY: You’ll feel like you’re living in a real-life Hallmark movie when you take your winter assignment in Milwaukee. From strolling through the Milwaukee Holiday Lights Festival, to ice skating downtown at Red Arrow Park, to finding the best “Christkindlemarket”, there is an endless amount of winter activities to see and do.
WHO: The Trendsetter WHERE: Seattle, Washington (Trendsetters)
WHY: It’s no secret that Seattle is one of the hippest cities in the country with its vast number of microbreweries, coffee shops, and music and live entertainment performances. During your stay, grab some coffee and the Starbucks Reserve Roastery & Tasting Room in Capitol Hill and then check out the Museum of Pop Culture (MoPop) where music, sci fi and pop culture come together in colorful exhibits including The Jim Henson Exhibition and Wild Blue Angel: Hendrix Abroad.
Who: The Serious Foodie WHERE: Houston, Texas (Foodie)
WHY: You could spend your entire assignment eating your way through Houston. Vietnamese crawfish drenched in garlic butter? Check. Restaurants offering eight courses with wine pairings? Check. A build-your-own Greek gyro option? Check. Some of America’s best BBQ? Check. Don’t just take our word, see (ahem, taste) for yourself.
Who: The Brazen Beach Bum WHERE: Pensacola, Florida (Beach Bum)
WHY: Pensacola’s temps stay in the balmy 60s all winter long, which is perfect for hanging out on their infamous white sand beaches. From festivals to 5ks, contests to concerts, there is never a shortage of entertainment along the main strip of Pensacola Beach.
WHO: The Architectural and History Buff WHERE: San Jose, California
WHY: Between the beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains and the South Bay, you can enjoy the city’s rich, cultural history. Our top picks?
