What travel nurse wouldn't want to spend his or her next contract on California's most beautiful beaches? Santa Barbara is a popular destination for its wide white sand beaches, its many wineries, and its excellent shopping and dining. Not to mention, it boasts some of the most gorgeous views in the country.

The beaches of Santa Barbara are a great place to try surfing, and there's even a beach that includes a no-leash-required dog park for those who bring a furry companion along on travel assignments. One great way to experience the city itself is through one of its popular food and photo tours, where you make your way through Santa Barbara sampling some of the best food, wine, and beer it has to offer all while passing gorgeous sights and learning how to take the perfect photograph. 

The outdoor enthusiast will feel right at home in Santa Barbara. Not only does the mild climate allow for outdoor activity all year, but it features the Santa Ynez Mountains, a perfect hiking destination. You could also go kayaking through the interconnected waterways of Channel Islands National Park. 

From paragliding to just people watching and taking in the view from Stearns Wharf, Santa Barbara is a perfect destination for adventure-seeking RNs and beach bum nurses alike. If you're ready to see it for yourself, give Nurses PRN a call!
