If Dallas is too upbeat for your coliving choice, then Fort Worth might be a better option. It’s the fifth-largest city in the state of Texas and only a 30-minute drive from downtown Dallas, so there is plenty to do and see not just in Fort Worth but in the surrounding areas as well. This is a great hub for digital nomads looking for a warm, vibrant place to call home. If you’re already a remote worker then Fort Worth may have not crossed your mind yet, but this is not a city to just skip over. Located in sunny Texas, there is an abundance of nightlife options, restaurants, and live music choices for you to enjoy.
One of the advantages of calling Fort Worth home over Dallas is, of course, the cheaper cost of coliving. Fort Worth is home to many of the state's top universities and large multinational corporations such as American Airlines, Radioshack, Lockheed Martin, and more. There are plenty of good bars and clubs to check out once you get off work, wherever that may be. There is great cuisine to be found too from classy restaurants to street food cars around town.
When it comes to transport, yes Fort Worth is not Dallas, but there is still great public transport. Situated only 32 miles outside of Dallas, there is a light rail to take you around the city and public buses as well.
