The thrill-seeking in spirit can explore Shenandoah National Park. Among the adventures to be had there are the Shenandoah Caverns, where you can take an elevator 200+ feet down to take in breathtaking cave formations. The Blue Ridge Mountains offer beautiful sights and the Traveling RN doubling as a beer enthusiast would enjoy touring the Brew Ridge Trail, which takes you through the mountains to six different craft breweries. 

If you hope to soak in some culture when you choose a Travel Nursing assignment, you will find it in Richmond, a city filled with dining, music, and art. Monument Avenue and Historic Downtown are chalk full of American history. Ocean lovers will find themselves at home in Virginia Beach, the perfect place for a Travel Nurse to relax on a beach chair or try something new such as surfing or whale watching.
