Top Five Travel Assignment Cities for Couples
Are you planning to bring your significant other on your next travel assignment? The only thing better about being a travel nurse or therapist and having the opportunity to explore new cities and places for 13-weeks is doing it with someone you love. Here is our list of the best cities for a travel assignment as a couple.
San Diego. More than just the setting for the hilarious comedy ‘Anchorman,' San Diego has a lot going for it as a great place for couples. Let’s start with the weather! On your days off, imagine strolling down the beach, hand in hand, any time of the year. Then there is the three-mile boardwalk for biking or rollerblading, or just people watching those who pass by. Once the sun goes down, there is plenty of nightlife in the historic Gaslamp Quarter where you can catch a great meal and share a few cocktails at one of the many rooftop bars.
San Francisco. Another California gem, the City by the Bay was seemingly made for romance. Spend an afternoon at the Golden Gate Park, or hang out on Ocean Beach and watch the surfers catching waves, your daylight hours will be filled. In the evenings, take your pick of any number of world-class waterfront restaurants and enjoy the nighttime views of the bay. Another benefit of your assignment in San Francisco is the proximity to Napa and Sonoma valleys where you can plan some wonderful wine excursions.
Charleston, SC. Imagine strolling down oak-lined streets surrounded by stunning antebellum mansions and other architectural masterpieces. The scents of seafood and sausage in a pot wafting from local dining establishments while the occasional horse-drawn carriage clatters down the street. Are you on a movie set? Technically, no you aren’t, but when you visit the charming southern city of Charleston, South Carolina, you feel like you have wandered onto a big budget film production. There is so much to see and experience in Charleston that you and your significant other will not want to leave after your 13-week assignment ends.
Providence, RI. Have you always wanted to take a trip to Venice? You can come close by choosing a travel assignment in the surprising city of Providence, Rhode Island. This New England city features totally redeveloped waterways and canals and even offers gondola rides on the Providence River. When you are strolling downtown, you have a plethora of trendy shops, cafés, and eateries to choose from. Don’t let an opportunity to visit Providence pass you by.
Miami. Who doesn’t want to spend 13-weeks enjoying the sun, fun, and excitement of Miami? When you are not working, you will have plenty of time to explore the hot nightlife and celebrity sightings in South Beach. There are many other neighborhoods with their own style and vibe throughout the downtown area, and you can choose where to hang out based on your mood of the day. From the stunning waterfront skyline to the energy of Bicentennial and Bayfront parks, the food, the music, and the weather combine to make Miami a great travel assignment destination.
