MARYLAND

Maryland is in the middle of lots of good things, it's no wonder travel nurses love Maryland! Ocean City, MD is one of the east coast's number one resort cities and has 10 miles of great beaches.  Baltimore is a city of diverse neighborhoods, like Little Italy, with world-class restaurants, unique shops and boutiques and an endless array of entertainment options. 

Feast on the famous blue crabs at great eateries all over Maryland.  Maryland is full of great places to see like Annapolis, called the "Sailing Capital of the World" and home to the U.S. Naval Academy.  Don't forget the lush Appalachian Mountains and Victorian town of Cumberland on the western side of the state.

Sports fans will have plenty to do in Maryland.  Two National Football League teams call Maryland home, the Baltimore Ravens in Baltimore and the Washington Redskins in Prince George's County. The Baltimore Orioles are the state's Major League Baseball team.

In the summer, you can enjoy 10-miles of Atlantic Ocean beach in Ocean City where you can swim, surf, fly kites, parasail, or jet ski.  Walk the ocean-front boardwalk, visit the amusement parks and eat blue crab and fresh caught fish at one of the many restaurants.  Nature lovers will love the mountains and lakes around Rocky Gap and historic Cumberland.  In the winter, head to the western side of the state where you can enjoy winter sports at the Wisp Resort.

Any time of the year, shoppers will enjoy Bethesda's trendy boutiques and restaurants. Then cross into Washington D.C. to see all of the excitement and majesty of our nation's capitol.  Living and working in Maryland puts registered nurses in the middle of lots of good things to see and do.
