Travel Nursing Destination Spotlight: Los Angeles

April 10, 2013

Los Angeles, also known as “The City of Angels,” is a heavenly place for travel nurses to experience with many attractions to see. You can hobnob with anyone from Hollywood stars to surfers on the beach. Here’s just a few of hundreds of attractions to see in the Golden State’s largest city:

Beaches for every type of recreationNo matter what type of beach atmosphere you’re looking for, the Los Angeles area probably has what you want. If you’re considering to people watching, Venice Beach may be the best option with several street performers. Looking for the classic beach? Just north of the Santa Monica Pier is Santa Monica State Beach where, according to DiscoverLA, it’s a great place to walk due to its two-mile length. Or, you can just stretch out on a beach towel and enjoy the sun. More beaches and their vibes can be found by clicking the beach link above.

Restaurants – Spotting celebrities and eating ethnically-diverseMingling with the stars is something that many people try to do when visiting Los Angeles. If that’s your style, DiscoverLA has compiled a list of the top 10 restaurants to spot a celebrity. The list includes some of the best restaurants in the city, including Wolfgang Puck’s.

If trying different types of ethnic foods is your thing, LA acts as a melting pot of hundreds of cultures and you’re sure to find a cuisine that will satisfy your palate. Just a few of the localities include Chinatown, Historic Filipinotown, Koreatown, Little Armenia, Little Persia, Little Tokyo, and Thai Town.

Shopping – Santa Monica PlaceSince Fastaff offers the highest pay in the travel nursing industry, you may be able to shop for a few things from the glamorous Rodéo Drive. However, if you’re trying to keep to a more modest budget and stay in a popular area, Santa Monica Place might be a spot you’ll want to look at. Located just two blocks from the beach, this shopping destination has several trendy shops and restaurants with views of the city, mountains and ocean in an open-air setting.  

TCL Chinese Theatre (Formerly known as Grauman’s Chinese Theatre)If you get a chance to stroll along Hollywood Boulevard, and are a movie history buff, the TCL Chinese Theatre is a must-visit. This attraction displays its famous 10-foot tall lotus shaped fountains and has footprints from nearly 200 of Hollywood’s biggest stars dating back its opening in 1927.

The Laugh FactoryOpen since 1979, this world-famous comedy club has been called the best in the country by media outlets such as USA Today. It has hosted famous acts such as Tim Allen, Drew Carey, Ellen DeGeneres, David Letterman, Jay Leno, Ray Romano, Jerry Seinfeld, Robin Williams and more!
