Seattle is the best U.S. city for digital nomads.

After over two years of the pandemic, the race for the best U.S. zoom town is still open. Now, Seattle ranks as the best city for nomads, followed by Chicago and Portland.

As a result of this moving trend, different platforms are exploring the best U.S. cities for digital nomads and remote workers. A recent report analyzed other U.S. cities to find out the best areas to relocate to work remotely. 

Among ranking factors, the study included wi-fi speed, proximity to national parks, state recreation areas, airports, average annual temperature, and so on.
