A Travel Nurse’s City Guide to Boston


As the biggest and most bustling city in Massachusetts, Boston is a must-visit. This coastal capital boasts a blend of the old and new, with a rich past and a present modern edge. Renowned for its rich US history, Boston offers residents (long or short term!) countless historical landmarks to see and a seemingly never-ending list of unique activities and experiences.

Home to a long list of nationally ranked hospitals, Boston is an understandable hotspot for healthcare professionals like travel nurses. The city accommodates the flexible lifestyle of its many on-the-go occupants, with temporary housing options in abundance. Using services like our partner, June Homes, nurses placed in Boston can easily find furnished, affordable apartments in central locations, where you’re never at a loss for local things to do, see or eat.


Like any oceanside city, Boston boasts seafood worth writing home about and here you’ll be spoiled for choice in its seafood restaurant scene. One in the North End of Boston worth visiting is Neptune Oyster. Since opening in 2004 this high-end, modern eatery has been crowned as one of America’s best seafood restaurants and is the perfect way to experience a modern edge to Boston seafood.


If you’re on the lookout for a local place to grab a quick drink, make your way to The Corner Pub in the heart of Boston’s Leather District. This well-loved, family-owned bar is known for cold craft beer and made-from-scratch burgers with a casual and cozy setting that’s perfect for unwinding after work.


Looking for a quick and active way to see Boston? Join an Urban AdvenTours’ Boston City View Cycle Tour, grab a bike and helmet and be led through some of the city’s best sights in just two and a half hours. Hit the streets in one of these tour groups to get some fresh air and exercise while you learn about Boston history, geography and more.


Boston Common is known as the United States’ first ever city park. Together with its neighbor, the Public Garden, it forms one of the biggest green areas in downtown Boston. Full of lush lawns and winding trails, it’s the perfect escape from the city, in the city where you can stroll over footbridges or picnic under a tree.
