Since March, about 64% of companies have allowed "most" or "all" of their employees to work from home, and the trend is expected to continue through 2021, according to a new report by The National Association for Business Economics.

The shift has caused many, particularly big city dwellers, to relocate, looking for a cheaper cost of living and more space for a better quality of life.

So with so many work-from-homers on the move, what are the best cities for remote workers?
