While on nursing assignment, Oregon has a lot to offer from outdoor activities to beautiful and historic places for sight-seeing. The Oregon Trail is the longest and most famous routes used in the westward expansion of the US. Also, interestingly enough, it is the home to more ghost towns than any other state.

Oregon’s rich history is visible all over the state. As a travel nurse, you'll be able to take great pictures of lighthouses, and covered bridges.  Experience the picturesque views of hot springs, sea lion caves, and the pure blue lake at Crater Lake National Park. Fishing is also very popular among nurses. They have several lakes to enjoy, salmon fishing on the Columbia River, or fish the Oregon Coast. After fishing, set up camp and stare up at the stars of the Oregon nights; one of the most beautiful sights you'll find anywhere.

During the winter months, Oregon features some great spots for skiing. Need to keep warm, visit their popular museums such as the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry or the Portland Art Museum, which features works by masters such as Van Gogh and Monet. During thanksgiving time you can visit the Willamette Valley wineries. More than 150 wineries open their doors over a three day period. You can enjoy wine tastings, food, music, entertainment, and much more. Bring your other nurse friends and enjoy an evening together outside of the hospital. 

Nurses, be sure to celebrate German culture with Oktoberfest. This festival attracts more than 300,000 people and features music, food, dress and beverages of Bavaria, dancing, and much more. Oregon even features one of the largest rodeos in the country, the Pendleton Round-Up. Here you'll see bareback riding, saddle bronco riding, calf roping, steer wrestling, and many more events. The Oregon Shakespeare Festival, founded in 1935, is another event that should not be missed.
