With numerous companies adopting remote work policies, many people have begun to work remotely while they travel—whether they’re discovering America or exploring the world.
Icelandair calls that a “wellness workcation,” and it has released a list of the best destinations in the U.S. to take one, with Dallas landing in the top 10.
“There are many benefits to this trend of remote working such as more free time, avoiding busy commutes, and having a flexible schedule. All these factors are allowing more people to work remotely and travel abroad at the same time,” the company wrote in a blog post.
Looking at factors that take into account personal wellness and business needs, the airline ranked Dallas as the No. 7 best city in the U.S. for a “wellness workcation.” Dallas was the only Texas city to make the top 10. (Houston came in at No. 11.)
Dallas ranks high in ‘quality of life’
Icelandair’s rankings examined 11 factors, including cost of living, internet speed, safety, and air pollution. One notable result: Dallas ranked higher in “quality of life” than any of the cities above it on the list.
Kansas City was ranked the No. 1 U.S. city for a “wellness workcation,” followed by Cleveland, San Diego, Jacksonville, and Portland
On a global level, the airline looked at 150 cities, with Kansas City again taking the No. 1 spot, followed by Vienna, Austria; Wellington, New Zealand; Copenhagen, Denmark; and Edinburgh, Scotland in the top five spots.
