Most Affordable Destinations for Digital Nomads in the U.S. & Canada
Airbnb releases findings based on their long-term stay data that rank the most desirable — and most affordable — destinations for digital nomads in the U.S. and Canada. People are no longer at officers for eight hours, commuting back and forth, day in and day out. Instead, the majority of the global workforce has gone remote, giving way to the rise of the digital nomad.
Below are top destinations in the United States and Canada for both long-term guests and hosts, based on affordability, hospitality, popularity, and host income.
Here's What We Know:
In the U.S., Airbnb’s report explained, the highest-earning destinations for hosts included La Quinta, California; Delray Beach, Florida; Marco Island, Florida; Palm Springs, California; and Indio, California.
As for the most affordable spots for digital nomads, the team at Airbnb looked at the average price per night for long-term stays in destinations that had 1,000 or more long-term stay nights booked in Q1 2022 to determine which offers the best price. In fact, these all came in under $50 per night.
In the U.S., the top most affordable spots include:
- Tulalip, Washington (most affordable)
- Angleton, Texas
- Lamberton, Minnesota
- Garretson, South Dakota
In Canada, guests can find long-term affordable stays in:
- Québec City
- Thorold, Ontario
- Gatineau, Québec
- Medicine Hat, Alberta
- Trois-Rivières, Québec (most affordable)
Affordable vs. Desirable
As you can probably already tell, the most affordable and most desirable don’t always align. According to Airbnb’s findings, the most popular destinations for long-term stays in Q1 2022 in the U.S. are Los Angeles; New York City; San Francisco; Houston; and Seattle. And in Canada, it’s Toronto; Montréal; Vancouver; Calgary, Alberta; and Victoria, British Columbia. Basically the coolest and most expensive cities in both countries!
