Congrats to Duluth – a newly named top ten remote-ready city

Business North reports

The list, compiled by Livability with Fourth Economy, combined Livability’s 2020 Top 100 Best Places to Live rankings with indicators and data from Fourth Economy’s Community Index. Categories and amenities included broadband access, local jobs that could be done from home, affordability, a robust regional economy, and quality of life.

Duluth came in at No. 10 for its “unparalleled access to nature and outdoor recreation opportunities for every season. … Right after you close your laptop for the day, you can head outside and make the most of your prime location.”


Livability also recommends Duluth for its super-fast high-speed internet connections that can support three to four people at one time. “So if you’ve got roommates or a partner who’s also working from home, you won’t have to strategically stagger your video conference calls.”

I can’t believe they don’t even mention the amazing music that comes from that part of the world! I guess that’s icing.
