Brattleboro, VT

Vermont is a popular destination for Traveling RNs due to its rich culture, breathtaking scenery, and outdoor activities. Being a small state in size makes the variety of experiences that Vermont offers easily accessible to visitors. 

The Burlington waterfront is the spot to go for those looking for an urban feel or who would like to explore the many restaurants and microbreweries that Vermont offers.  In warmer months, live music can be found along the popular lakefront. For those exploring Vermont in summer months, Burlington Wine and Food Festival offers the chance to sample the best the area has to offer.

With the Green Mountains running through the state, Vermont is a well-known skiing destination whether you're just beginning or ready for the advanced slopes. If you take a Travel Nursing contract at a warmer time of year, Vermont offers beautiful hiking trails and is famous for its fall foliage. As the Green Mountains are bursting with color, you can ride one of the many ski lifts just to take in the view. 

The endless Bed and Breakfasts dotting the countryside, most of which are full in summer months, show how popular of a destination Vermont has become for those ready to explore its quaint towns and mountain adventures.
