13 Best Cities Digital Nomads Can Call Home in America

If you’re a Freelancer or Remote Worker, these are the Cities for you!

Being a Digital Nomad is slowly becoming the norm and as an increasing amount of digital nomads start families, having a nest seems like the next logical choice.

Each city is considered based on its average internet speed, housing cost-to-earning ratio, rural areas, and access to opportunities.

  • Henderson, Nevada

Nevada is the stand-out state for remote working, as it has the highest rate of startup formation, making it the best place to find opportunities. At first glance, you might think Henderson is in the middle of nowhere, and you’d be right, but that’s exactly the point of “work from anywhere.” And as more and more remote workers start families, this homely yet largeish city might be the place for you.

  • Columbus, Ohio

When most people think about Ohio, their minds instantly go towards Cleveland and Cincinnati, but Columbus is Ohio’s Largest city and its capital. Columbus is home to a plethora of unique and walkable neighborhoods.

  • Minneapolis, Minnesota

All I can say is Minneapolis has the fastest internet speeds in the country. And as a digital nomad, do you need any more convincing? In case you do, this beautiful city is home to rivers, lakes, and the largest continuous skyway system in the world, an incredible 9.5 miles of pedestrian walkways connecting 80 city blocks.

  • Glendale, Arizona

Glendale is home to over 1300 coffee shops with free internet, many co-working spaces, and six libraries. From bookworm nomads to social butterflies. This is the city for you to build your nest or spread your wigs.

  • Wilmington, Delaware

Wilmington has over 35% of its workers working remotely at some level. So you would fit right in. It offers a peaceful and vibrant city with affordable housing, amazing culture, and great food.

  • Irving, Texas

This is the perfect time to become a cowboy or girl, and this economic powerhouse is the best to do it. It’s a relatively small city, but its proximity to Dallas allows digital nomads to enjoy many co-working spaces, libraries, and coffee shops. With the added adventure of being surrounded by lakes, rivers, great sporting activities, and 27 square miles of potential mini-vacation destinations in the palm of your hands.

  • New York, New York

I know mentioning New York when I repeatedly talk about the cost of housing and transportation is weird, but that’s why I mentioned the housing to earning ratio. As for transportation, if you’re working remotely, you’ll hardly ever leave your block. And when it comes to opportunities, you’ll be hard-pressed to beat New York. X% of the world’s biggest startups have offices in New York.

  • Topeka, Kansas

Research shows an increasing number of people are leaving major cities in the quest for the new normal. In this case, it is, working remotely living in a wide-open space that’s also a vibrate city full of opportunity. Topeka offers you just that.

  • Eugene, Oregon

Like Wilmington, Oregon has over 34% of its workers working remotely at some level, and as such, it offers you a community of forward-thinkers. Eugene is located along the Willamette River, and it several offers an amazing mix of arts and culture, shopping and dining, entertainment, and sports. And the potential for real adventure and great food.

  • Raleigh, N.C

Raleigh has a great job economy and is full of college grads as it ranks in the 10 ten destinations for college grads in a number of lists. Combined with the fact that it has that small-town suburban feel perfect for the new digital nomad; the family man.

  • New Orleans, Louisiana

Forget about the image of vampires that comes to mind when you hear New Orleans LOL!. If you have watched “CW’s The Originals,” you already have a feeling of what it has to offer, year-long festivals and parties, art, culture, music, dance, and a vibrate startup community with the potential for big city life and small-town vibes. New Orleans is an ideal home for any kind of digital nomad.

  • El Paso, Texas

This is a hotbed of remote working, as more and more companies welcome the idea that you don’t have to see every employee every day. And its proximity to Mexico makes it a cocktail of culture and history, and if you want to get a feel of working in the wild west minus the sanitary restrictions, this might just be an adventure worth having.

  • Tulsa, Oklahoma

T-Town has affordable housing, great job opportunities, and an increasing trend of remote working jobs. And as Oklahoma’s second-largest city, you still get that big city vibe, but not too big!

Did you catch that? I know some of you did. And that’s because no matter where your search for a new home takes you, Nomad Internet will be there to offer you up to unlimited high-speed internet designed for digital nomads and rural residents.

    Oh, thank you, Nomad, for doing such a job again and selecting the best for us! I used to look for places where I could have a lot of fun, but now I have a wife and son, so I’m looking for comfort and peace in my travels.So North Carolina is what we need!

  • MI

    I really liked the way you described New Orleans, Louisiana. A place with the atmosphere of a small town, but at the same time with the possibilities of a big city. This is a real dream for many, including me. I will not miss the opportunity to stay in New Orleans longer to experience it. I used to visit it only for the sake of the festival.

    For me, as probably for many girls, the mention of New York causes a happy thrill in my heart. After all, I grew up on films in which they always said that all dreams come true in New York! It’s silly, of course, to believe it, but all the same, when I go on my first trip, I will definitely go to New York!

    The article touches upon the topic of best cities for digital nomads. The main idea is to introduce the reader to the list of such cities. The article is divided into several parts, each of them describing a city. I believe that everyone will find a city to their liking. However, I find the description quite shallow, there is not enough information about the actual living and what it would be like. I’d prefer if there were fewer cities in the article, but described more fully. Other than that, I really liked the article, especially the part about New Orleans and Glendale.

    You have picked up incredible photos of these places that are able to lure even those who were not going anywhere. Intuitively, I liked Minneapolis, Minnesota, and then I read the description and only strengthened my choice. And Texas is also very close to me, I’m going to go there at the invitation of a friend and he often jokes that I won’t want to return and will stay there to live.

    As a digital nomad, finding the right city to call home can be a challenge. With so many options available, it’s important to consider factors such as cost of living, internet connectivity, and overall quality of life. While the cities listed in this article are great options, it’s also important to keep in mind that what works for one person may not work for another. It’s essential to take the time to research and visit potential cities, speaking with local residents and getting a feel for the community before making a decision. Additionally, it’s worth considering alternative options such as rural areas or smaller cities, which may offer a more laid-back lifestyle while still providing the necessary infrastructure for digital nomads. The key to finding the perfect location is to prioritize your personal values and needs.

    Hate to disagree with Raleigh, but you do not have the full picture. Raleigh is a hot bed for technology, true, but there are so many technology workers that pay is much lower than what your skills and education should provide for while cost of living is higher than in most southeastern cities. The closer you are to downtown Raleigh the better the internet availability, but the other costs of living go up as well. If you are already working remotely or are willing to accept entry level pay, regardless of experience, Raleigh is a decent place to live. Don’t move to Raleigh expecting to find a local good paying job. You won’t find one.

    El Paso is an excellent city, or at least it was 10 years ago when I lived there, but a much better choice is Las Cruces, NM. Las Cruces is just 45 minutes from EP and has lower population density, lower cost of living and a great community feeling. Las Cruces is a college town that has anything you may need and great internet access.
