If you’re a remote worker living in Houston, you might just want to stay put. A new ranking puts Houston high on the list of the best cities in the U.S. for remote workers.
The Bayou City comes in at No. 11 overall in LawnStarter's new ranking for remote-work ranking.
For its list, Austin-based outdoor services provider LawnStarter examined data for 194 of the biggest U.S. cities covering 20 factors, including remote job opportunities, internet connectivity, cost of living, and availability of personal workspace.
Elsewhere in Texas, Frisco tops the list of the best cities in the U.S. for remote workers, followed by Dallas (No. 3), Arlington (No. 4), Austin (No. 6), and Plano (No. 8).

Jeff Herman, editor in chief at LawnStarter, tells CultureMap that overall, the Texas’ lack of an income tax and solid quality of life boosted all of the states’ cities in the top 20, he says.
