There are seven airports in the city! If your work takes you to other cities quite often, do not worry, Las Vegas has you covered.

Being a major tourist attraction the city sees regular investments, and the economy is thriving. Jobs are aplenty, but it might get slightly competitive so you may need to polish that resume. An abundance of coworking spaces and being an RV-friendly city have made Las Vegas a desirable place for remote workers too.

Las Vegas offers many benefits that you can hardly get anywhere else, yet it remains affordable and has kept itself free of any big-city problems.

The biggest feature attracting people to Henderson is its great climate. The sun shines all year round and the winters are warm. If you are one of those suffering in the colder states, Henderson is where you should be relocating to.

You’d be glad to know that Henderson was named the second safest city in the country by Forbes. Living here, you will be safe as the crime rate is low. The city is also safe, atmosphere-wise. It has been named the greenest city in Nevada, courtesy of the clean and pure air quality.

The “Biggest Little City in the World” may just be one of the best places to live in Nevada in 2022.

The city of shining neon lights and casinos was essentially built with the gaming industry as its foundation. However, over the years it has become much more than that. If you are not into casinos, it will be easy to avoid the gaming scene altogether.

The city has 96 public schools, making it the second-largest school district in Nevada. There are private schools in the city too, so you can go to whichever one you prefer. For those going for higher education, the University of Nevada- Reno is a good choice.

Reno is definitely a tourist town, which benefits the locals too. It has opened up many jobs, not just in the hospitality or entertainment industries, but also in the technology and education sectors.

Many high-rated restaurants are offering delectable cuisines in Reno. Lounges and clubs, craft cocktails, local breweries, live music, and special events- you will find it all here.

In addition to the epic nightlife, there’s more that Reno has for its citizens. The city sits close to the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest so you have many activities to do. You can go skiing, fishing, hiking, camping, etc.

Luckily, Reno sits snugly among three water bodies; Lake Tahoe, Truckee River, and Pyramid Lake. Along with that, there are many parks and mountains you can visit. Snowboarding, ice skating, snowmobiling, hiking, rafting, biking, you can do it all here.

With top internet providers giving speeds up to 5000 Mbps (AT&T), and many spots such as Walden’s coffee bar offering free wifi, Reno can prove to be a good home for remote workers. Reno Collective, Beacon CoWork, and Pacific Workplace are some of the many coworking spaces in the city that digital nomads can make use of.


Though it is famous for its nightlife and plethora of entertainment channels, Nevada also makes for a good place to settle in. The cost of living, even in big cities, is reasonable. There are charming neighborhoods and plenty to do in the Nevadan cities.
