Hey folks, I'm planning to visit a friend in Philadelphia, and I'm honestly not getting a great impression of the city before visiting.

What areas, neighborhoods, or lodging would you recommend a digital nomad to stay in Philly?

Or perhaps you know of some places within an hour's drive from Philly that are a better option to stay?

I'm not interested in going out on the town or seeing the sites if it's that dangerous. I'd rather just stay in some sort of oasis outside of all that.
I never heard of Philly being dangerous. I spent a few weeks a few years ago, and no problems, not my favorite city but good to visit.
I stayed in ~Society Hill~ Queen Village area
I live here and I'm curious what isn't giving you a good impression. I live in Old City and yes it's a city with inherent city issues, but no more than NYC, SFO, CHI, etc.
I haven't been in years but honestly aside from panhandling and rampant homelessness it isn't any more dangerous than any other city in the U.S.
+1, I live here now (albeit, in NoLibs which is a pretty young and gentrified area), but Philly is like any other place. Stick to the right neighborhoods during the right times and it wonโ€™t be an issue.

Crime is up in the city overall (as with elsewhere in the US post-covid(ish)), but itโ€™s not like people are running around with knives. The tourists and local community are as vibrant and active as ever.

Some highlighted neighborhoods for new visitors include Fishtown, Northern Liberties, Queen Village, Passyunk, Rittenhouse, and Washington Square.
I mean Kensington needs some work... for sure... but that's true with any city neighborhood. If you're uncomfortable, just avoid that neighborhood. It's a good bit outside of center city, so not something you'll stumble upon accidentally if you're staying near the "sites" and center of the city
xgaamflbfgxvok if itโ€™s good enough for your friend youโ€™ll be fine :)

I like Rittenhouse square/downtown. Lived in Philly for four years and went to university there. One of my favorite American cities.

Could anyone in the group give guidance on the best VISA, for someone looking to stay working for their UK based employer, but is wanting to live in the US (still working with his UK employer and UK client base) for around a year.

Seems really confusing in terms of the current VISAs that are available to Nomads, or what the best option is for a digital nomad. As I'm not looking to be employed by a US employer, and it seems the only other options are tourist visas for 90 days or 180 days.

Any info would be HUGELY appreciated :)
A Tourist visa usually gives you six months stay; this would be your best option. leave the country before 180 days and come back
Doesn't exist yet
If you're a UK citizen you get 90 days visa free anyway, so I don't think you would want to apply for a 90 day tourist visa. The visa waiver specifically allows you to travel "for business" so if you wanted to stay 100% above board you could schedule to attend a few conferences towards the beginning and end of the stay
Not sure there is anything else that is easy to get
Visajourney.com|Visajourney.com is your go to for specific visa questions
It is not that simple. I moved to NYC 1.5 years ago (during the pandemic). I would come to the US using an ESTA waiver (90 days). Would stay 70-80 days, go back home, stay in Portugal for 10-15 days, and comeback to the US.

After the second time they started asking why I wouldn't get a Visa. And I explained (which was true) that I was waiting for my visa appointment.

They always let me in, but they definitely had questions.

O1 would be a good option for you (if you qualify) but it takes time.

The other option is B1/B2. You can stay up to 180 days, you just need to let them know you are travelling for business, meeting business partners, lawyers, associates, etc.

You can always ask for an extension (1 year, instead of the 180). I haven't, since I have to travel back to Portugal every 3 months for at least 10-12 days, so it's all fine.
I might be out of town in October. I have a place in SD - it's so hard to leave because it's paradise ๐Ÿ™‚
If you're living in the US for a year, surely the US would consider you a tax resident and your UK company would have to deal with all the US taxes?

Hello, does someone knows a nice coliving / house to stay in San Diego?
Hey jufrqulphlk don't know about places to stay, but if you're in SD we could meet up. I've been working out of the WeWork in downtown SD. Lots of good people there.
ofrbcrsogqvdlgr awesome! Yeah definitively!
Are you here already?
No, I am coming July 24. I am trying to find a nice place to stay. But looks like there are not many options for digital nomads there.
SF and NY there are much more options for us.
Makes sense!
The Same Sun hostel is really nice, the vibes of the place are awesome! Not a coliving, but a really nice place to make friends. I stayed there for about 15 days.
You can also look on DeskPass for coworking day passes. I go to Union Cowork which has a bunch of locations between LA->SD and love it
For housing, it will be hella expensive in the summer
