Seattle, WA

Seattle is home to beautiful views, quirky tourist attractions, and a nurse's best friend - coffee. The Pacific Northwest is known for having an active population, and Seattle is no exception with the multitude of parks and green spaces that earned the nickname "The Emerald City." Being surrounded by the Cascade Mountains, the Olympic Mountains, and the Puget Sound, a port of the Pacific Ocean, Seattle is surrounded by views in every direction. 

These 360-degree views can be best scene from the Space Needle, the most famous feature of the Seattle skyline. When you first get to Seattle for your travel contract, you can use the Space Needle to take in a full view of your surroundings before diving in and experiencing them. Another way for sports loving nurses to experience the city is at a Seattle Seahawks football game or a Seattle Mariners baseball game. 

Downtown Seattle houses most of the city's major attractions, such as Pike Place Market. It’s the oldest farmer's market in the US and boasts a huge indoor and outdoor market for fresh seafood, produce, and handmade crafts as well as the original Starbucks location. Beyond that, there are plenty of shops, restaurants, and museums to explore downtown. Seattle also has a lively music scene that can be encountered there. 

The ways you can see Seattle are endless. Check out your new city from a hot air balloon, a cruise along the harbor, or a food tour. Active nurses can take opportunities for boating, hiking, and more among Seattle's parks, beaches, and mountains. Beyond that, you can get to know Seattle at one of many festivals throughout the year. Bumbershoot is a huge music and arts festival. Seafair fills the city with street fairs, hydroplane races, a Torchlight Parade, and the Bite of Seattle food event. As a travel nurse, you work hard and deserve to be somewhere that makes it worth it. Seattle will do just that. Give Nurses PRN a call to see what's available!
