A traveling RN seeking beautiful beaches, Southern charm, or amazing food will be happy in South Carolina. The quintessentially Southern state is full of natural beauty, falling along the Atlantic coastline and containing the Sandhills and the Blue Ridge Mountains within. 

Myrtle Beach is a popular destination for tourists from around the world with its 60 miles of white sand beaches and its practically endless options for dining, shopping, and theater. The adventurous in spirit can try out tons of water sports such as wakeboarding or surfing, while the travel nurse ready to relax will find miles of sand open to the public. 

Charleston, SC is known for being the most well-preserved Southern city in America. This beautiful city filled with cobblestone streets and pastel houses is a popular place for tourists to take a carriage ride or just walk around soaking in the history. Although it's famous for its rich history, Charleston has a variety of modern restaurants and art galleries to be explored. 

Head to Columbia, the largest city in South Carolina to cheer at a game at the University of South Carolina or take in the city views from a kayak ride along the river. Along with the rest of the state, Columbia has some of the best Southern Barbecue and fresh seafood you'll ever try.
