Oftentimes, we digital nomads skip destinations in our own backyards and make full use of our passports. And who can blame them?

When you are fortunate enough to pack your bags and work from anywhere, it’s easy to see why the U.S. would be passed over for a worldwide adventure.

That being said, the U.S. is home to some phenomenal places to use as a long-term base as more remote workers are taking the plunge into digital nomadism.

One unsuspecting town is becoming increasingly popular with the latest travel trend, where more and more digital nomads are heading off to scenic mountains and calling the breathtaking town of Jackson Hole ‘home’.

Here are 5 reasons why:

A Slower Pace

While Wyoming’s capital city of Cheyenne is lovely to visit, it’s Jackson Hole that is high on travelers’ wish lists each year.

Digital nomads have taken notice and love visiting this beautiful small town oozing charm and history.

The small downtown area can be lively at times, but overall, digital nomads love coming here as an alternative to bustling cities for a change of pace.

The main strip looks as if Rick Moranis made a new movie, Honey, I Shrunk The Stockyards and downsized one of America’s most Old West-themed neighborhoods into a perfect natural setting.

There are no high-rises, rather gorgeous mountains for a picture-perfect backdrop from your home office or cafe along old-timey streets where it feels a saloon fight may break out at any moment.

Speaking Of Home Offices…

Jackson Hole’s rental market is booming. The budget may not meet every digital nomad’s budget, but the flexibility certainly will.

Many rentals come with leasing options as low as just one month and up to half a year for those who see themselves longer-term.

Long-term stay options abound with a mix of luxe vacation rentals, cozy cabins, and basic, no-frills apartments.

The best part of all is that it’s quite impossible to stay in a bad location. Nomads seeking solitude can easily find a place to stay off the beaten path, while others looking to mingle and be a part of the community can stay closer to town.

Tight-Knit Community

Jackson Hole is home to only 9,000 residents but is very used to having tourists plus up the numbers.

Locals keep a tight-knit community, but digital nomads are forming their own get-togethers as the gorgeous mountain town has become a hub for remote workers.

Between social media groups, local meetups, activity clubs and multiple co-working spaces, nomads are surely to make new friends in no time to enjoy the nice town and stunning nature together.

Excellent Work-Life Balance

The worst part about working is…well…working. But Jackson Hole makes the work-life balance so much easier than many popular digital nomad destinations.

For such a small town, visitors may often be surprised by how many ways to keep busy. Of course, part of the allure of Jackson Hole is to take it easy, but digital nomads committed to staying long-term will undoubtedly want to be a part of the action at some point.

There is no better place to start off your day in the great outdoors before “clocking in”. And by evening, there are fun happy hours or yoga classes to wind down your day however you see fit.

Endless Outdoor Adventures

Being in Jackson Hole, travelers will find there’s no bad time to visit to enjoy the outdoors. From skiing, hiking, fishing, and so much more, Jackson Hole can be a year-round destination depending on your interests.

Perhaps the best outdoor destination is only 10 minutes down the road – the stunning Grand Teton National Park.

Digital nomads will have some of the most beautiful landscapes in the country in their own backyards full of blooming colorful flowers and a vast array of wildlife.

Perfect for day trips and weekend escapes when it’s time to log off your laptop, digital nomads have over 300,000 acres to explore with dominating mountains at every turn.
