Petaluma, CA

If you'd like to spend your next travel assignment in a city unlike one you've ever seen before, you can probably find it in San Francisco. The city is known for its diverse population, hilly streets, Victorian homes, and scenic views of the Bay area and Golden Gate Bridge. 

For a city with so much to do and see, San Francisco actually spans a relatively small area, making it a great place for a travel nurse who wants to have convenient access to everything a location has to offer. Fisherman's Wharf is the first stop for visitors as it has tons of restaurants featuring the city's fresh seafood and the port to take a ferry to historic Alcatraz Island.

When you have days off from your travel assignment, there is lots of exploring to do throughout the city. Of course, you have to cross the famous Golden Gate Bridge. You can also explore the San Francisco Bay by sailing or kayaking through the water or sticking to land by biking or walking along the San Francisco Bay Trail. 

You will feel like a true San Franciscan while you take a ride in a cable car, spend a day exploring Chinatown (San Fran's is the largest outside of Asia), and go to Union Square for shopping, theater, or an art gallery. If you're going to San Francisco, be sure to give Nurses PRN a call!
