Florida travel nurse living is the best!

Although some liken Florida to warm-weather states California, Arizona and Texas, nothing compares to travel nursing in Florida and Gulf Coast living . The Sunshine State boasts more than 650 miles of warm, sandy beaches and the bluest waters of any U.S. coastline. Diving, snorkeling and boating are favorite pastimes in Florida and golf and horseback riding are superb.

Travel nurses for American Traveler are never more than 60 miles from the beach no matter where they go in the state, and fast boats to Key West and the Bahamas run daily from many coastal cities for day and weekend excursions. Sport fishing in the Keys is rated some of the best in world and the straw markets of Nassau and Paradise Island are packed with vendors looking to haggle with buyers. Unlike California and Hawaii—states that tax travel nurse earnings by almost ten percent—Florida has no state income tax, saving travel nurses thousands of dollars every year. And with the fifth lowest sales tax in the nation, travel nurses seeking high pay can shop till they drop.
