If desert beauty and full sun appeal to you, head to Arizona. Phoenix, the capital, sits within low mountain ranges that are perfect for day hikes, mountain biking, and rock climbing. Flagstaff lies in northern Arizona surrounded by the Sonoran Desert, the pines of the Coconino National Forest, and the San Francisco Peaks. With one of the higher standards of living in the state, Phoenix boasts many luxurious diversions that range from indulgent spas to extravagant boutiques. That higher cost of living can also translate to higher travel nurse salaries in Phoenix. Active travel nurses can match their outdoor activities to the time of year, hiking or rafting the Colorado River, visiting Grand Canyon National Park's South rim, or skiing at the Arizona Snowbowl resort or Humphreys Peak.
