According to the website, Kansas City is one of the best cities in the US in 2023 for remote workers. Lawnstarter created a list of the top 50 cities for remote workers in the US next year and Kansas City comes in at 8th on the list behind cities like Atlanta, Plano (Texas), Seattle, and Austin. On the site they say...

"We compared the 200 biggest U.S. cities based on 20 remote worker-friendliness factors, such as internet quality, cost of living, and access to coworking spaces. We even considered financial bonuses that local and state governments offer prospective telecommuting incomers."

Kansas City was ranked 3rd in its Connectivity category, and 7th in its Financial Incentive category. But Kansas City was ranked really low in two categories, 180 in Safety, and 182 in Activities.

St. Louis makes the top 50 coming in at 34th on the list. Meanwhile, for our listeners on the Illinois side of the river, Naperville gets ranked 14th, while Joliet makes the list at 23rd. To see the complete list for yourself just click here!

Ask yourself, where would you live if you could just work from home? If you don't have a family or other things tying you to a specific location the world can be your oyster when it comes to working remotely. I don't think Kansas City would be my number one pick but I would choose it over a lot of other places in this country. Where would you choose to live?

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
