Instagrammable Maine

Explore some of Maine’s most photographable scenery, parks, and historical attractions from the lenses of our travel nurses’ cameras. If you’re looking for a travel nurse job that’s far from ordinary, put Maine on your list. In fact, we have openings in small towns tucked deep into the northern-most state and assignments in bigger cities known for food and brew tours, like Portland and Bangor.

1. Acadia National Park

This is one place loved by our travelers. With plenty of trails and breathtaking views, it’s no surprise. Acadia National Park is situated primarily on Maine’s Mount Desert Island. Think woodlands, rocky beaches, and granite peaks. Be sure to check out the Park’s website for more information on dog-friendly hikes, popular campgrounds, where to park, and much more. Plus, a Cadillac Mountain hike at sunrise catches the first rays of sunlight to hit the United States.
