You’ll be able to walk, hike, climb, see, and photograph all of these beautiful things.  During the winter months, you’ll even be able to ski and snowboard one of the top locations for winter sports.

If you want to try your hand at lady luck, you’ll find no place better. Casinos are aplenty, as you’ll see several just driving down the interstate - bring your nurse friends out for a fun evening on the town!  While on your travel nursing assignment, be fure to enjoy some Brewpubs.  There are many to visit, so you’ll be able to try out new beers or some of your old favorites. Another popular activity, whale watching, is one you won’t want to miss. Between the months of March and September, you can take a boat out on the water to get an up close look at the mighty orca and gray whales. Sounds like a perfect afternoon away from the hospital.

This weeklong kite celebration attracts the most famous kite fliers from all around the world. You can either watch the competition or have fun flying your own kite.  For an old-fashioned flare, check out the Ellensburg Rodeo.
