Nomads’ Nirvana

Seattle is the best city in the country for digital nomads, according to a 2022 Pew Research Center study. You only need to look at our plethora of workspaces, world-class transit, and proximity to attractions and day-trip destinations to understand why.

Find over a dozen coworking spaces—from nationally known companies like WeWork and Regus to locally and independently owned outfits—sprinkled throughout the city, including several that offer day passes and premium amenities. The Cloud Room (1424 11th Ave, Ste 400) in Capitol Hill is steps from restaurants and shops at Chophouse Row and features high-speed Wi-Fi, unlimited printing and copying, and soundproof phone booths for work, as well as a bar, rooftop lounge, and complimentary kombucha, snacks, and espresso. Belltown’s Knack Collective (2132 Third Ave)—with expansive windows, colorful murals, and ample hot-desking space—is known for its inclusive community. It promotes convenience and flexibility, including a mother’s room and office space available to rent by the hour or for the entire day.

When work’s done, it’s time to play. Discover restaurant and retail districts throughout Seattle, including close to downtown’s major hotels as well as in more residential areas like Capitol Hill, Fremont, Ballard, West Seattle, and the Central District. With everything so close at hand, and Seattle’s convenient Link light rail line and bus system, you can easily pop into a museum on a weekday afternoon or stop by an attraction on your lunch break.

Weekends as a digital nomad mean even more opportunities to explore. Hop on the Washington State Ferries for a day trip to Bainbridge Island, or take in the wildflowers on a spring day hike in the Cascades. When it’s time to move on, the flight options from SEA Airport make it that much easier to keep on traveling—and even easier to plan your return visit.
