Zippia, residents all around the country can take a look at the latest findings to discover which cities are the best when it comes to finding a destination to be quarantined in.
Ranking each city on a scale from 1 to 99, Zippia broke down their findings into four categories - how much park land for every 1,000 residents there was, how many residents have broadband internet, the average apartment size, and how many take-out options are available within the city.
Using data from sources like Doordash, RENTCafe, Trust for Public Land, and the U.S. Census, Zippia was able to break down the best
and worst cities around the country when it comes to quarantine.
According to their information, Scottsdale, Arizona, was deemed the best city to be quarantined - highlighting that the city offers larger than average apartments, faster internet to help them out when it comes to staying busy by streaming all of your favorite shows and movies, and the fact that they have lots of greenery and outdoor space that’s ideal for social distancing.
