With miles of beaches and the beautiful year-round tropic weather of South Florida, Boynton Beach and Delray Beach are dream destinations for a travel nursing contract. As part of the Miami Metropolitan area, these cities are smaller than bustling Miami but large enough to feature dining, shopping, and an artsy downtown to rival any location.
Downtown Delray Beach is a popular tourist destination known for the nightlife along "the Avenue" and for the laid back attitude that comes from the downtown area being adjacent to the beach itself. Both Boynton Beach and Delray Beach feature many public beaches where you can rent a chair and umbrella to relax after a busy nursing shift. You can also play beach volleyball and explore the colorful boardwalks.
The adventure-seeking nurse has tons of options in the Boynton Beach-Delray Beach area. The beautiful beaches lend themselves to saltwater fishing, snorkeling, and scuba diving. It's also a popular destination for surfers, whether you are an experienced surfer or are trying it out for the first time. The Arthur C. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge Preserve is a must-stop for hikers. It can also be explored from the water by riding its 5 mile canoe trail.
No matter what time of year you head to South Florida (check out the 100 foot Christmas tree in Delray Beach, winter nurses), you will be greeted by beautiful weather and a seemingly endless list of ways to fill your time. After walking out of the hospital after a busy shift, it's nice to be in a city that smells like the salty ocean and is filled with a love of adventure and exploration.
