Sunnyvale, TX

Dallas is a go-to destination for the travel nurse who wants to experience big-city living in a state that takes great pride in its own unique culture. The city's unique skyline marks a place full of opportunities for recreation and culture. From modern shopping and restaurants to Texas classics like the rodeo, you will have plenty of ways to fill your time during a contract in Dallas.

Downtown Dallas is a go-to place for dining, shopping, and nightlife. Make sure to head to one of the many restaurants for a Texas-style meal. Also downtown, along with several neighborhoods throughout the city, is a high concentration of museums. From art museums like the Dallas Museum of Art to science museums like the Perot Museum and more, there's something to pique every nurse's interests. 

To really get the Texas experience while in Dallas, head to the Mesquite Championship Rodeo for a rodeo show or check out the Texas State Fair. The huge fair goes on for 24 days, hosts tons of concerts, has great food, and hosts the Big Tex Choice Awards where the best cooks on Texas compete to make the tastiest and most creative fair treats. Head there with your nurse friends on a day off and vote on your favorites.

In Dallas you can fully immerse yourself in the city lights or take a break at White Rock Lake or one of many parks throughout the city. You can learn about the city's rich history at the Sixth Floor Museum, dedicated to the John F. Kennedy assassination, or shop in the city with more shopping centers per capita than anywhere in the US.
