The Fore River separates Portland and South Portland. Both cities are walkable, but travel nurses in search of a novel event opt for a fishing charter in Portland Harbor. Speaking of "novel," horror fans can check a visit to The Stephen & Tabitha King Foundation in Bangor off their bucket list. Travel nurses working in Bangor should also plan a visit to Arcadia National Park. Climb or drive to the top of Cadillac Mountain for breathtaking views, especially at sundown. In Maine, L/A refers to Lewiston and Auburn. Lewiston welcomes all types of hard-working people. A low cost of living makes already high travel nurse pay go even further, too. And unwinding is easy. Step into a poem at the Thorncrag Bird Sanctuary, a retreat nestled in the city. Auburn's Lost Valley is an ideal locale to lose your worries. Participate in endless outdoor fun then warm up (or cool off) in the cozy lodge. Sound good? Explore Advantis Medical travel nursing jobs in Maine below.
