These Are the Top Airbnb Destinations for Digital Nomads in the U.S.
California unsurprisingly dominated the list.
While COVID-19 has been an obvious downer for humanity as a whole, the pandemic has created new opportunities for some—even within the travel sphere. Thanks to new work-from-home flexibility, many ditched the traditional office structure for a nomadic lifestyle.
In fact, according to Airbnb, the North American Digital Nomad Index reports that one in five guests used the rental marketplace platform to work remotely while traveling in 2021. Hosts in the US also earned a combined total of over $2 billion thanks to long-term stays.
