If you’re going to move to San Francisco, be sure to wear flowers in your hair, cloak yourself in a free-spirited glimmer, and get ready for uninhibited mischief. The fun-loving city permits you to be weird, unique, and creative, thanks to its outlandish vibes. 

To top it off, SF has adopted a thriving digital nomad scene due to its number of coworking spaces, coffee shops, super-fast WiFi, bumpin’ nightlife, and world-renowned restaurants—need I say more? 

One of the best parts of San Francisco—especially when it comes to digital nomads—is the amount of co-living spaces dotting the area. Staying in one of these housing units grants you the chance to enjoy cozy spaces, equipped with fast WiFi and communal rooms filled with like-minded individuals, without comprising the typical non-committal nomad lifestyle. 

That’s right. All you need to do is commit to 30-90 days, feel it out, and decide to leave or stay. Who says moving needs to be stressful? Just tuck your laptop into your bag and off you go!
