Yakima travel nursing jobs are located just 60 miles from Washington state’s Mount Rainier and in the heart of wine and hops country. The Yakima Valley is a major U.S. agricultural center supplying 77% of the country’s hops as well as a fruit and vegetable producer. Grapes are another large crop and the area is becoming known for its wine as well with more than 50 wineries in Yakima Valley.
Guided winery tours are available for RNs on Yakima travel nursing jobs and brewpub crawls let you taste a wide variety of hops grown locally. Antiquing is big here and dozens of specialty shops sell one-of-a-kind treasures and trinkets. Of course, located in the coffee-culture of Washington, there are plenty of cafes and coffee shops to meet and mingle.
Downhill and cross-country skiers on Yakima travel nursing jobs can travel just 50 miles west to White Pass, Washington to hit the slopes, trails and après ski. In summer, the Yakima River, Naches River and several small lakes are the main attraction for all types of water recreation. Pedestrian and cycling trails run along the water’s edge.
