Destination Highlight: Northern California

20131127_CaliforniaTaking that perfect assignment in northern California — whether it’s in a small-town hospital or a big-time teaching facility — lands you in one of the most diverse regions of the country, a region that’s loaded with things to do.

Soak up the sun on pristine Pacific beaches, stand awestruck before the towering Redwoods (the tallest living things on our planet!), take hikes in dramatic Big Sur back country, or ski the snowcapped mountains around Lake Tahoe.

Make sure you explore the sights of San Francisco. Its cable cars take you up and down the city’s famous Nob Hill, and from there you can head to Fisherman’s Wharf for shrimp at Bubba Gump’s, to dinner at any of the city’s five-star restaurants, or for a drive over the Golden Gate Bridge.

A weekend touring the famous wineries of the Napa and Sonoma valleys is also an absolute must.

A favorite hidden treasure in the area is Patrick’s Point. Twenty-five miles north of Eureka, you’ll see thick, lush forests almost spill over sea cliffs, with pounding surf and sea lions below.

Historic cities, tranquil bays, local galleries, exciting nightlife, sun-drenched valleys, majestic cliffs — make the most of your northern California assignment!
