Revel in Mardi Gras!
Mardi Gras explained.
New Orleans may be known for Mardi Gras but even if your assignment doesn't cross paths with the infamous celebration, there are still many ways to celebrate and experience Nola. You'll want to visit the French Quarter at least once! Bourbon Street, the heart of French Quarter is 13 blocks of Louisiana history! It's located in the oldest neighborhood in New Orleans. Next, check out Bywater for an up-and-coming neighborhood of shops and restaurants. On your "cheat day" head to Lower Garden District and the Aenue Pub for "Dumpster Fries." There are so many neighborhoods to explore, you'll never run out of things to do in Nola!
Baton Rouge is another fantastic city where our travel nurses have spent 13 weeks. Baton Rouge is home to the state's capital and the state's second largest city after New Orleans. Baton Rouge, with a population of nearly 230,000 packs in many industries: industrial, petrochemical, medical, research, motion picture,and a growing technology hub. For a city of its size, it has become a hub of the South in many areas of production. In addition to the state capital, Baton Rouge is home to Louisiana State University and an enthusiastic fan base surrounding its football team.
