Why Should You Consider Becoming a Travel Nurse in Nevada?
There are a few things that come to mind when people first think of Nevada:
- Las Vegas
- Area 51
- and sunshine
Nevada has all of these things, but there is more to Nevada than “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas”.
Nevada has one of the most beautiful landscapes in the lower 48. The deserts, canyons, and pine forests are a treat to explore. Though it is one of the driest deserts in the States, the Mojave Desert alone is stunning to behold. Joshua trees are only native to the Mojave Desert and if you see one, you’ll know you’re there.
For rock climbing enthusiasts, Nevada has around 3,000 different cliffs to climb across the state. Red Rock, in southern Nevada, is known for being one of North America’s best destination climbing locations. But there are so many opportunities to engage in this sport or learn it for the first time.
If humidity is bothersome, Nevada has lower humidity and more days of sunshine than most states in the U.S. In this land of extremes, the summers are hot with temperatures up to 100 degrees Fahrenheit, while winters are very cold.
In winter, you’ll find world-class ski resorts and slopes. Nevada is a great option for many outdoor activities including camping, hiking, and mountain biking. Skydiving also has a large following here. Imagine viewing the deserts and canyons while trying not to focus on how high up you are.
Lake Tahoe, which sits on the border between California and Nevada, is a top destination both in the warmer months and in the winter. The crystal-clear water is great for stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking, and swimming. The surrounding mountains make for a great hiking experience. In the winter the ski resorts open. In between ski runs you can relax in South Lake Tahoe’s restaurants and lodges while you warm up.
All those sunny days means more opportunity to do the outdoor activities you love if you can bear the heat in the hottest months.
Because Nevada receives many taxes from visitors to Las Vegas, overall state taxes are low. The cost of living in Nevada is slightly above average compared to the rest of the States.
Reno and Las Vegas hold most of the state’s population, and most of its more hedonistic attractions. We won’t judge. Gambling, diverse cuisine, and any kind of entertainment you didn’t know you needed can be found here.
