4 Best American Cities for Digital Nomads and Solopreneurs
If you’re planning to set out as a digital nomad and make your living in the gig economy, you’ll want to make sure that any city you spend a significant amount of time in has plenty of perks for solopreneurs. For example, in some cities, you can use services like Patty’s Tours to tour local gems and meet new people!
When you’re ready to start making plans for your journey, check out these exciting American cities — you’ll definitely want to include these stops on your itinerary.
If you want to enjoy great music, delicious food, and extensive networking opportunities, Austin, Texas should be the first stop on your itinerary. Although rents in the city are rising, it is still more affordable than many other major cities, so as you look for a place to stay, Life Storage states that you should expect to pay about $1,174 per month in rent.
It’s important to find ways to save money when you’re traveling, especially in a city like Austin, where there are endless things to do! You can download a budgeting app to track your spending. You can also use apps like FareCompare to get airfare alerts in real-time and snag great flight deals, or Hotel Tonight to book affordable accommodations.
Ready to soak up the sun on your digital nomad journey? Head to Miami, Florida, where you can work hard during the day, enjoy the nightlife after hours, and hit the beach every weekend! With famously sunny, warm weather and endless miles of golden beaches, it’s hard to imagine a better American city for digital nomads. It’s important to note that if you want to book a rental in the Midtown area, you should be prepared to pay about $1,800 per month.
Located on the California-Nevada border and about 22 miles from Lake Tahoe, Reno is a popular destination for tourists and gamblers from around the globe. The picturesque “Biggest Little City in the World” sits on the eastern side of the Sierra Nevada in the High Eastern Sierra foothills, in the Truckee River valley. Primarily driven by investments from big tech companies like Microsoft, Apple, Google, and Panasonic, the area has become one of the country’s new hi-tech centers and is a digital nomad’s mecca. And for solopreneurs, it’s a real prize – Popular Mechanics ranked Reno as the eighth-best location for startups in the country.
Living and doing business in Reno is relatively inexpensive. The cost of living is just higher than the state’s, and you can expect to spend just $1,314 a month for a two-bedroom apartment.
Nashville, Tennessee is the perfect fit for creative digital nomads - with such a storied musical history, you’re bound to feel inspired in this bustling city. As you scout out places to stay, you should keep in mind that the rental market in Nashville is quite competitive, so if this city is a must-see, book your accommodations early!
You can stay productive at local coworking spaces like Spaces Riverfront Park or Launchpad. Once you’ve wrapped up your work for the day, you can check out live music all over Nashville. You never know when you might discover an exciting unknown artist! If you want to learn more about Nashville’s artistic past, you can also take a guided tour of the city’s major attractions.
Becoming a digital nomad is a major lifestyle change. That’s why it’s important to visit cities where you can truly feel at home as a remote worker. In any of these cities, you’ll be able to find great company, lots of off-the-clock activities, and affordable rentals where you can work hard. Soon, you’ll be ready to hit the road with your finalized itinerary!

Touring Northern Nevada
Reno, Nevada has long been known as the Biggest Little City in the West, but other than that moniker, what else is known? Thousands of people come from all over the world to Reno for Conventions and entertainment. Reno’s various hotels and Convention Center host events ranging from a Cannabis Convention to Working Dog Shows. The variety of people that come have interests as varied as you can imagine. Anyone that has attended business conventions, knows there needs to be a diversion away from the convention itself to make the visit to the city more memorable. Tours are available and can be tailored to the size of a group, as well as the interests they may have. Patty’s Tours in Reno, for example, has developed a variety of tours for groups from 10 to 1,500 that can liven up an otherwise mundane convention. This can include a day trip to historic Carson City, or beautiful Lake Tahoe. Sitting for hours in conferences and workshops can create the need to get out and stretch. Patty’s Tours has organized walking tours that include wine or micro-brew tasting or sampling local cuisine, or even a horse back trail ride to stretch those legs while seeing some amazing scenery. Go back in time to the gold rush days and visit wild boom towns such like Virginia City with an informed guide provided by Patty’s Tours. With a little advance notice, specialized tours can be arranged for people with special needs such as a language translator or even American Sign Language interpreter. So even if the convention fails to provide the inspiration or motivation you were hoping for, Patty’s Tours can provide the memories and photos that will last a lifetime.
