Citi.io: New Orleans One Of The Best Cities For Digital Nomads
NEW ORLEANS – New Orleans has been named one of six “Best Cities for Digital Nomads 2017” by urban technology site citi.io.
The website reports:
“The one thing truest about technology is that it is always evolving. These days, technology is more accessible than ever, which means those who love to travel can now take their technology with them in ways they never could before. People of all generations are realizing that they no longer have to be stuck in one place in order to make a living, which is precisely why they’ve found ways to take their work with them on the road. Hence why the term “digital nomad” was born.
“Not familiar with the word pairing? According to Web Work Travel, by definition, a digital nomad is someone who uses technology to earn a living and go about their everyday activities no matter where they are. Digital nomads typically travel a whole lot, never staying in one place for too long.
“Of course, certain jobs are more nomad-friendly than others. Bloggers, for example, can easily travel the country while keeping up with their sites. In other cases, nomads maintain office-based jobs by using applications that allow them to travel while still working.
“That being said, certain cities stand out among the rest, for various reasons, when it comes to accommodating digital nomads and their lifestyles. Check out the list below of the best cities for digital nomads in 2017.”
About New Orleans, citi.io reports:
“New Orleans, Louisiana may be the best place to go in the United States if you want to feel like you’re visiting another country, without ever leaving the mainland. The food alone is enough to bring people from all over to the bustling city, as is the incredible night life. Do I even need to mention Mardi Gras? While the parties are certainly over-the-top and life-changing, New Orleans is undoubtedly a city that digital nomads can settle comfortably into.
“Additionally, New Orleans makes a great place for digital nomads because it’s a city well-known for supporting companies involved in oil and energy, transportation, healthcare, finances, and defense. One more bonus: the food is divine. It’s highly unlikely you’ll be able to find fresher, better prepared seafood anywhere else in the United States. There’s just something about those Cajun restaurants serving up authentic Creole cuisine that will make you wonder why it took you so long to get to New Orleans in the first place.”
