TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- VISIT FLORIDA along with hotels and vacation rental providers from across the state are reminding digital nomads that Florida is open for remote business. From its beaches and national parks to its waterfront towns, the Sunshine State offers the perfect escape for those eager to pack up their laptops and break away from the doldrums of daily life.

According to Airbnb, the number of reviews from US guests mentioning “remote working” or “work remotely” has nearly tripled since the start of the pandemic. Reports show that pets are traveling too, with the number of searches using the “allow pets” filter jumping 90% compared to 2019.

Remote workers searching the Airbnb marketplace can easily toggle settings to find Florida accommodations that meet their needs. Guests looking for longer-term lodging can click on the “monthly stays” option, to see an organized selection of rentals featuring key amenities (kitchen, Wi-Fi, laundry facilities, etc.) that often have discounted pricing. Adjust the “Traveling for Work” filter to see homes with 5-star ratings perfect for business travelers.
