MakeMyMove identifies the best US cities to work remotely.
The first COVID outbreak started a new moving trend across several US cities. Most people moved away from big cities to live in more affordable states. As a result, cities like Las Vegas and Dallas launched convenient initiatives to attract remote workers and tech talent.
And people moved to diverse US cities to work remotely, attracted by cash incentives to housing discounts.
