5 Awesome Winter Locations

We’re already deep into the Holiday season (click here to check out Medical Solutions’ Holiday Working Bonus) and colder temps are bearing down on much of the U.S. Winter never used to be my favorite season, but I’ve learned over the years it can actually be pretty great if you just take advantage of the unique seasonal opportunities. For Travel Nurses winter job opportunities are plentiful, as “snowbirds” travel to warmer climates. Besides that, how great is it to have a job that allows you to choose the type of weather you want for winter? So whether you want to soak up the sun or hit the ski slopes, here are 5 awesome winter locations for Travel Nurses.

Lotus at Grand CanyonArizona

The Copper State is one of the best known destinations for anyone trying to shirk winter’s cold temps. As many folks head to Arizona to winter, hospitals and facilities in the state need major backup from Travel Nurses. Besides the benefits of the toasty desert clime resulting very mild winters, Arizona’s home to several great cities that offer sightseeing, sports, and culture. Plus, adventurers can flourish year-round here with the many national forests, parks, and monuments. Winter is actually a great time to visit the Grand Canyon and avoid the monstrous summer crowds. Or, if you decide you do want a little snow in your life, you can always hit up the ski resorts of Flagstaff and Alpine. Click here to check out winter jobs in Arizona.

One reason why Georgia is on Ray Charles’ mind could be that winter is typically very mild in the Peach State.

Excursions could include a trip to historical alpine village, Alpine Helen Georgia — located in the picturesque Blue Ridge Mountains alongside the Chattahoochee River.
