Have you ever seen an alligator? Louisiana boasts the biggest alligator population of the South. Travel nurses in Louisiana can take a guided tour by airboat or kayak and glide right by their glowing yellow eyes and massive jaws or go to the Greenwood Gator Farm in Gibson and see alligators from hatchling-size to giant-sized.
