Seattle is the 15th-largest city in the United States and is a MUST for every travel nurse! It also happens to be the birthplace of Jimi Hendrix, Starbucks, grunge, and so much more! If you’re a night shift nurse, you’re in luck! This city is known for heavy coffee consumption, and while a Starbucks is always a convenient walk away, there are also a number of artisanal roasters. The city offers an exciting array of activities, from the Seattle Symphony to the Seattle Seahawks. Don’t forget to travel down to Pikes Place market and have some seafood, buy a beautiful bouquet and put some gum on the gum wall! The city is also pretty walking, cycling, and bus friendly, if you don’t bring a car. But if you want to do any hiking or skiing, you might want a car. Don’t forget to try out some kayaking, rock climbing, or sailing. Watch out for those shoulder seasons, which can be pretty wet and gray and hard to cope with if you’re used to sunshine.
