Lexington, KY

As a travel nurse, you are always looking for a new adventure. Lexington has a unique identity that will allow you to do just that. Scenic horse farms converge with an urban downtown and lively college campuses to form this fun-loving city in the Bluegrass Country region. 

Downtown Lexington has something for everyone. History buffs could spend days exploring the surrounding historic neighborhoods containing places like the Mary Todd Lincoln House and the Hunt-Morgan House, to name a few. Grab your nurse friends and enjoy a show at the Downtown Arts Center or go to one of Lexington's great restaurants. If you're more of a sports enthusiast, you won't be disappointed. The University of Kentucky is a staple of the city; UK basketball, particularly, is a point of pride. 

Triangle Park is a great stop for visitors to Kentucky. From there, you can take a horse-drawn carriage ride through the city, enjoy an outdoor cafe and beautiful fountains in the warmer months, or skate on the park's ice rink during the colder months. 

Lexington is a city that loves to celebrate, and there are tons of events throughout the year that will help you learn your new surroundings. Bet on a horse at Keeneland Race Course, take in the work at Woodland Art Fair, or enjoy the great eats and music at Festival of the Bluegrass or Crave: Food and Music Festival. You can even go to one of many bourbon distilleries. You're going for a nursing contract, but of course you want to fill your off time with fun. Lexington is the place for that.
