Follow the Fall Colors for Your Next Travel Nurse Assignment

Autumn is now here and we are starting to see it unfold. Scenic drives, long walks with leaves crunching under your feet, hot apple cider… and of course, the changing colors of the trees. They bring a beautiful array of different colored foliage; it’s almost as if someone took a paint brush to the earth.  If you are presently trying to decide where to take your next travel nursing assignment or are going to be on the road soon, you may want to consider following the fall colors.  Here are some of our favorite spots for the fall season:

The East Coast. Spotlight state:  Vermont

You can look up fall foliage reports from the state foresters to get the inside scoop on where to see the best hues. Practice your swing on some of New England’s most scenic golf courses, or on one of many tennis courts. Take a guided horseback ride, fish in local lakes and streams and pick up some of the maple products that make the state famous.

The Midwest. Spotlight state: Nebraska

And where better to see the abundance of trees than in the founding Arbor Day state. Pick up fresh fruits and vegetables from farmers’ markets, drive through the wildlife state parks, and enjoy a family outing at a pumpkin patch with bonfires, corn mazes and hayrack rides.

The South. Spotlight state: South Carolina

In addition to the traditional beauty of fall leaf foliage, the autumn displays feature other picturesque sights as well. Along the coast, the marsh grasses change dramatically from the summer shades of soft greens to shimmering fall hues of gold and amber. Touring the scenic highways and recreation areas is the best way to get your fill of the scenery. Besides the foliage, enjoy visiting South Carolina’s beautiful mountain waterfalls, including Whitewater Falls with a total drop of 900 feet and six of the state’s magnificent State Parks.

The Pacific Northwest. Spotlight state: Oregon

Fiery red, vibrant yellow and rich gold are some of the colors you will see in the Northwest. The display does vary from year to year and the color and duration dependent upon the weather conditions. Dry Indian summers, which often occur in the Northwest, lead to breathtaking hillside panoramas. The Oregon fall color season begins in mid-September and peaks in mid-October. The favorite scenery of the locals is along the Columbia River Gorge, where fall colors are so memorable you will never forget.
