The pandemic has changed the way Americans work, probably for good. More and more people want to work remotely, and employers are on board with it. For some folks that means simply working from their home. Others are going anywhere they can get a good Wi-Fi signal. Apparently, North Carolina is an ideal place for remote work.

LawnStarter has come out with their list of 2023’s Best Cities For Remote Workers. They looked at 200 of the largest U.S. cities, judging them on 20 factors, including Internet quality, cost of living, and access to co-working spaces, as well as financial bonuses offered to telecommuting incomers from local and state governments, and more.

Plano, Texas, tops the list with an overall score of 67.11 out of 100. The North Texas city earned the top spot due to their spacious homes, high broadband coverage, and low crime rate, as well as the fact that they have no state income tax, the 10th most affordable rent, and the 19th highest average household income.

Several cities in North Carolina garnered high marks, too. Charlotte and Durham both cracked the top ten, with Raleigh landing in 11th place. Greensboro is 44th and Winston-Salem is 75th out of 200. Charleston is the only South Carolina city on the list at number 138.
