What Travel Nurses Love About Anaheim:

  1. Location, Location, Location: Anaheim is the perfect place to be a travel nurse because its location is ideal. For a travel nurse who wants to be near the bigger metropolitan areas like Los Angeles and San Diego, without feeling overwhelmed, Anaheim is a great area to have a travel assignment. It’s less expensive than some of the coastal communities, plus it is family friendly, overflowing with sights and activities and just minutes away from the beach.
  2. Be Amused: Disneyland, Disney’s California Adventure park and Knott’s Berry Farm will awaken memories of childhood and help you embrace the more fun side of life. Where else can you feel the wind at your face on roller coasters, watch a parade with all of your favorite Pixar characters and shake hands with Mickey Mouse? These great entertainment venues are the perfect place to create memories with family and friends who come visit you during your travel nursing adventure.
  3. Shop Till You Drop: The Garden Walk, a beautiful outdoor shopping center just put Anaheim on the map as a top spot to eat, shop and be entertained.  With popular restaurants like Roy’s and P.F. Chang’s, a multi-plex movie theater and popular shops, this has become a must see for travel nurses who have the night off or need a little shopping therapy after a long shift.
  4. Take Me Out to the Ball Game: Any sports fan can appreciate a great team and the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim are no exception.  Make sure to catch at least one ball game during the season; for many sport crazed travel nurses, it is a highlight of their experience.
  5. Go Downtown Disney: With entertainment that boasts the ESPN Zone Sports Arena, House of Blues and Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen, Downtown Disney is a place to enjoy a night off without having to go too far from home.
