Travel Nursing Destination Spotlight: Houston, Texas

March 21, 2013

Despite the famous “Houston, we have a problem” quote, travel nurses won’t have many problems finding things to do in the fourth-most populous city in the United States. Also known as the Space City, Houston boasts an abundance of activities ranging from the largest mall in Texas to more traditional Lone Star State happenings such as rodeos and chili cook-offs. Here’s just a small taste of what the city has to offer:

Galleria MallWith 400 stores and 2.4 million square feet of space, the Galleria Mall will more than likely have what you’re looking for. According to their site, The Galleria also has a full-size ice rink for recreational and figure skating, a state of the art children’s play area, two swimming pools, a video arcade, three full-service national and international banks, two tax-free reimbursement locations, two tailor shops, 12 beauty salons, and a post office.

Johnson Space CenterLooking to explore a little bit of Houston’s space program history WHILE feeling like you’re launching into space? Take a trip over to Johnson Space Center. Attractions like the Blastoff Theater help give you a true off-this-planet experience.

Bayou PlaceLocated in the heart of downtown Houston’s theater district, Bayou Place is considered the epicenter for dining and entertainment. Here you can find dining options such as the Hard Rock Café or live entertainment at the Verizon Wireless Theater.

Houston Museum DistrictIf you want to take in museums without much meandering, the Houston Museum District is the place for you; it contains 19 museums all within a 1.5 mile radius. Some of the more notable ones include the Houston Museum of Natural Science, the Holocaust Museum Houston and the Museum of Fine Arts.

Houston is just one of the many places travel nurses get to experience when they work with Fastaff Travel Nursing. If you’re looking to learn even more about this great city’s attractions, be sure to check out Houston’s official visitor site.
