6 U.S. Destinations for a Remote-Working Vacation
Those who’ve been able to work from home over the last year have had to get creative about their workstations, setting up makeshift offices on balconies, couches or even kitchen counters. Some temporarily relocated to new cities and towns from early in the pandemic. But a new convergence of factors in the United States — easier access to vaccinations, loosening domestic restrictions, falling coronavirus cases and good weather — has led to a golden opportunity for those tempted to take their work on the road after a year of staying put. Remote workers who are vaccinated but are not yet required back in an office are enjoying what may be a once-in-a-lifetime window, if they’re in a privileged position to take advantage of it — to hit the road with laptops in tow, and explore the country while getting paid. Bookings on Airbnb of 28 days or more have nearly doubled in 2021 compared to 2019, with more than half of surveyed guests saying they used the time to work or study, according to a recent Airbnb report. And 71 percent of guests booking long-term stays said they planned to book a similar stay next year.
