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.
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.
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.
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 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 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.
This is the perfect time to become a cowboy or girl, and this economic powerhouse is the best to do it.

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.
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.
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 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.
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!
If you have a keen eye, you will notice what the cities are telling you, something extremely grinch if I’m completely honest; “NOMAD INTERNET.”
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.
