Hopping from location to location with laptop in hand, "digital nomads" or those working from an unfamiliar home for a short amount of time, are making Austin a top destination to set their sights on.
In a new report by Zillow, Austin ranks No. 2 for top U.S. destinations for digital nomads—a popular trend to follow after a year of working from home due to the pandemic. Contributing to its ranking, Austin's page views for rental listings are the second highest of the metros studied, according to the report.
The study states Austin's live music, arts and culture are what make it a hot spot for remote workers. It ranked highest—even above top ranked Jacksonville, Florida—in amenities sought after by digital nomads. Also boosting it to No.2 status was cost and quality of furniture rentals and coworking spaces.
