Best U.S. Cities For Digital Nomads In 2023, According To Rent.com

The pandemic sparked a revolution in remote employment and digital nomadism, with the number of Americans working from home tripling between 2019 and 2021. The WFH workforce increased from 9 million workers, or 5.7% of the overall employment, to 28 million, or 17.9%, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. 

Rent.com rankings and methodology

To determine which cities are best for remote work, the Rent.com researchers examined the following data:

Annual changes in median rent and rental ratesInternet accessibility and typical internet speedsCoworking spaces and the number of WFH residents

The study appears to approach remote work as a more formal employment in a permanent metropolitan location by concentrating on long-term rental prices, co-working space density, and internet plan speeds.

According to “Median Rent Score,” “Average Mbps Score,” “Lowest Cost Internet Score,” and “%Population WFH Score,” the report contains a comprehensive list of the top 100 cities. Each U.S. city under consideration receives a “Total Score” based on the sum of these five factors. Below are the top 10 cities on Rent.com:

Interesting conclusions that stand out from the study include:

Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina demonstrate strong appeal for remote workers, as each state boasts three cities that secure a place among the top 25 best cities for remote work. Remarkably, 24 out of the 25 top remote work cities are located in the Southern or Midwestern regions of the United States, highlighting their attractiveness for remote professionals. The lone West Coast representative within the top 25 cities is San Francisco. Notably, the majority of these remote work cities are smaller metropolitan areas with populations below 250,000 residents.
