75 million U.S. employees, which makes 56% of the entire U.S. workforce have a job that allows for remote work due to COVID-19 according to Workation.

Such flexibility becomes a real blessing for some people and an awful curse for others. As Statista reports, the most frequent issues are:

  • Loneliness (16% of cases).
  • Difficulties with separating work from personal life (27%).
  • No normal communication and collaboration with coworkers (16%).
  • Distractions at home (15%).
  • Lack of motivation (12%).

While collaboration issues can be addressed with the help of proper telecommuting technologies, the inability to unplug, depression, and loneliness are successfully kicked back at coworking spaces.

Better yet, if those coworking spaces are located in some beautiful destinations. Then you can go on a workation to renew a sense of inspiration, learn valuable skills, make connections, and get the job done.

1. Honolulu, Oahu

Honolulu is the capital of Hawaii. It is located on Oahu’s south shore. Hawaii doesn’t require any special presentation. Probably most of the Americans at least heard about the warm welcoming aloha spirit of the place, the spiritual beauty of the hula dance, the island’s world’s most active volcanoes, emerald valleys, vigorous ocean waves, and soft golden sands.

Honolulu is a great choice for a workation because of its perfect balance of urban and beach settings. You can spend a productive day at BoxJelly coworking and meet the most beautiful sunset at Waikiki Beach.

The next day you can enjoy the naval sights of Honolulu — Pearl Harbor National Memorial and the Battleship Missouri Memorial. And when you get tired of tourists, you can plan an escape to the North Shore or find some peace and solitude at Waimanalo Bay Beach Park and Kalama Park.

2. Aspen, Colorado

If the rocky mountains entice you more than sandy beaches, go to Aspen, Colorado. This is a popular ski resort that can be visited all year round for recreation and workation.

Aspen is a great destination to feel like a celebrity sliding down the slope, dining at a fancy restaurant, visiting a funky gallery, or a fun festival.

However, the best of its cities created by nature, like Maroon Bells, won’t cost you a cent. Another great benefit of workation at Aspen is that you can choose a coworking space in the heart of the mountains and move your projects forward while enjoying a magnificent view.

3. Lake Tahoe

If you are a fan of an active lifestyle, the workation on Lake Tahoe is exactly what you need. This large freshwater lake in the Sierra Nevada Mountains is located on the border of California and Nevada. Its crystal clear water attracts tourists all year round.

Winter is an ideal season for skiing and snowboarding here, while summer is great for hikes, drives, boating, and kayaking.

While Lake Tahoe is a perfect place for adventures, it’s good for work as well. You can get in touch with Cowork Tahoe, ask if they have a mobile app for remote bookings, and reserve your work spot with fast wifi and a collaborative community within a walking distance from the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the lake.

4. Miami, Florida

If you have an artistic soul, Miami, South Florida is probably one of the best workation destinations to consider. You will be carried away by the diversity of cultures, bubbling nightlife, unique art museums, hot sands, Caribbean music, and extraordinary food.

To feel the real taste of Miami Beach, go for a boat tour to admire the glittering skyline from the water.

Apart from extravagant parties and exploring a barrier island, you need to get your work done. For this, you can settle in one of the coworking spaces like City Desk, which is located in downtown Miami and concentrate on the daily tasks.

5. Charleston, SC

Charleston is the port city in South Carolina that can easily take you back in time to the epoch of gas lamp-lit streets, cobblestone walks, horse-drawn carriages, and antebellum architecture. This is a unique place where you can imagine yourself as one of the “Gone with the Wind” characters and experience the genteel spirit of the old south.

The city preserves its history and traditions, however, it’s not only sweet nostalgia that makes Charleston an awesome place for a workation. Here, the glorious heritage neighbors with contemporary objects such as restaurants, shops, art galleries, and even world-class Spoleto Festival USA.

If you want to spend a lazy afternoon on the beach after a busy workday at Holy City Collective or any other workspace, you can go to Sullivan's Island, Isle of Palm, or Folly Beach to enjoy the warm sun and gentle waves.
