Asheville, North Carolina

Asheville is an increasingly popular city for living and traveling for the same reasons it's a great destination for a travel nursing contract. Named America's "Happiest City" by Self magazine and one of the top seven places to live in the US by Forbes, this beautiful city full of recreational activities is definitely worth considering.

Asheville is nestled between the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Great Smoky Mountains, so you can take in gorgeous views from anywhere in the city. The unique architecture gives Asheville a trademark skyline, and the downtown area is filled with unique shops and restaurants along with tons of art galleries and museums. Make sure you grab some nurse friends to enjoy the exciting nightlife on a night off. 

Asheville is filled with sites to take in and fun ways to do so. The Asheville Brews Cruise takes you through the city one local brewery at a time. You can also go on trolley tours, food tours, bike tours, and even a haunted ghost tour. Make sure you check out the historic Biltmore Estate, which is the largest privately-owned house in the world. 

Outdoorsy nurses will be right at home in Asheville. Blue Ridge Parkway, for instance, is a mountainous area filled with waterfalls. The mountains surrounding Asheville welcome climbing, fishing, rafting, horseback riding, and paddle boarding. Beyond that, there are festivals and concerts going on all the time in this fun city. Asheville Wine and Food Festival and Downtown After Five are a couple favorites. If you want to explore Asheville for your next travel contract, give Nurses PRN a call.
