The 20 Most (and Least) Tech-Savvy Cities in America in 2024

Most And Least Tech Savvy Cities

From the invention of the wheel to the development of dial-up modems, innovation has fueled incredible growth and scientific advancements — as well as economic prosperity. Beyond creating thousands of new jobs, areas that embrace technology can experience significant economic growth by attracting new businesses and a younger, skilled workforce.

More than 11.5 million workers are employed in tech-related fields, according to CyberStates 2018 data, with nearly 200,000 jobs added in the past year. Employees in the technology sector make more than double the average national wages, and the industry adds roughly $1.6 trillion, or more than 9%, to the U.S. economy.

Interested in cashing in on this modern-day gold rush? Or curious about where your town ranks? We’ve identified the 10 most and least tech-savvy areas, a definition expanded to include other forward-thinking industries such as science, engineering, and math. Take a look at the locales that have risen to the top, or skip ahead to those that have chosen alternative economic routes.

The 10 Most Tech-Savvy Cities

While flying cars and robot maids aren’t a thing (yet), certain parts of the country are farther ahead than others on the path toward becoming the Jetsons. Cities we’ve dubbed technology-friendly typically enjoy low unemployment rates and ready household access to computers and internet connections; residents often have above-average educations and make higher salaries. The prevalence of jobs related to computing and programming tip the scales in favor of these areas, and locations near military bases and research facilities.

Map of the most tech-savvy cities in the U.S.

The most tech-savvy cities in America represent a wide range of computing, engineering, and science-related jobs.

Although tech-savvy cities are found across the country, our top 10 areas for technology are mostly concentrated on the East and West coasts — and, interestingly, often in pairs. Silicon Valley is well represented, as are the greater Washington, D.C., and Boston metro areas. The Deep South, Midwest, Rocky Mountains, and Pacific Northwest are all represented, as well, meaning nearly everyone has access to a nearby tech hub.

1. California-Lexington Park, Maryland

You were expecting to see Silicon Valley here, right? Believe it or not, these communities about 90 minutes southeast of Washington, D.C., have a significantly higher concentration of jobs in tech-related fields. For every four workers in the area, at least one person works in technology, information security, engineering, or other similar industries. While California and Lexington Park can boast rates similar to those of Silicon Valley when it comes to the number of residents employed in computing-related occupations, the region holds 2.5 times relatively more engineering jobs.

2. San Jose-Mountain View-Palo Alto, California

Back to your regularly scheduled list of most technology-friendly cities. Collectively known as Silicon Valley, cities like San Jose, Mountain View, Palo Alto, Cupertino, Sunnyvale, and Menlo Park are home to the world’s largest and most influential technology companies, including the global headquarters of 39 of the Fortune 1000. You’ve probably heard the list: Apple, Google, Facebook, Netflix, Oracle, Salesforce, and many others. The region is known for fast-paced innovation, hungry startups, and obscenely high home prices.

Image of San Jose, California

Spanning from San Jose to Redmond, Silicon Valley is synonymous with technology and innovation.

The concentration of computer-related jobs in Silicon Valley is four times higher than the national average, according to 2017 U.S. Census Bureau data. Silicon Valley leads the way in access to broadband internet, with more than 90% of residents subscribing to the high-speed service. At 63%, residents are more than twice as likely to have at least a bachelor’s degree, compared to the national average of 31%.

3. Boulder, Colorado

A relatively unheralded mainstay in the technology industry, Boulder has enjoyed a long history of innovation ever since IBM established a 500-acre facility in the area in the 1960s. Cisco, Lexmark, Nest, Oracle, Qualcomm, SendGrid, and Twitter all have a strong presence in Boulder, which is about 40 minutes northwest of Denver in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.

Image of Boulder, Colorado

Nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Boulder is home to the University of Colorado and a bustling startup scene.

Boulder’s population is extraordinarily well-educated, as the city is home to the University of Colorado’s main campus; nearly 75% of the city’s residents hold a bachelor’s degree or higher. Boulder also tops our list as having the highest percentage of households with a computer, coming in at 96.4%, according to census data.

In 2010, the city had six times more high-tech startups per capita than the national average — and twice as many as the San Jose metropolitan area — according to a 2013 study by the Kauffman Foundation. The entrepreneurial spirit and startup culture are strong in Boulder, with several publications also recognizing the area’s research activities, aerospace engineering expertise, high quality of living, and beautiful natural setting.

5. Framingham, Massachusetts

You may not expect a city founded in 1650 to be among the country’s most tech-savvy, but here comes Framingham, Massachusetts, to dispel that notion. Interestingly, the city comes to technology not by way of military bases or high-technology companies, but rather by forward-thinking retail organizations focused on consumer goods. Located roughly 25 miles west of Boston, Framingham hosts the global headquarters for TJX, the parent company of TJ Maxx, Home Goods, and Marshalls, as well as Bose and Staples.

Image of Framingham, Massachusetts

As a suburb of Boston, Framingham enables tech companies to leverage affordable office space and quality of life.

Healthcare and biotechnology are also well represented in Framingham, where Sanofi-Genzyme operates its research and development teams. The city’s Technology Park and nearby 9/90 Corporate Center accommodate more than 5,000 employees each day to the area. Roughly 72% of the area’s population is part of the workforce, making Framingham an attractive option for companies looking for more room outside of the nearby, crowded, and expensive Cambridge and Boston.

6. San Francisco, California

A little less than an hour away from the hustle and bustle of Silicon Valley, San Francisco is another locale at the top of people’s minds when it comes to technology. For much of its history, San Francisco has made its mark in the financial services and banking industry, as well as tourism and hospitality. More recently, however, the area’s economy has found impressive growth in the technology sector — 30% of the city’s job growth from 2010 can be attributed to the industry.

Aerial view of downtown San Francsisco

Originally a global powerhouse in the financial industry, San Francisco is now a major technology hub.

Technology companies represented only 1% of the local economy in 1990, but the industry has since grown to 4% in 2010 and 8% by the end of 2013. Having weathered multiple waves of tech booms, San Francisco attracts numerous venture capital firms, company headquarters, inspired entrepreneurs, and a highly educated workforce.

7. Lowell-Chelmsford, Massachusetts

Chalk another one up for the greater Boston metropolitan area. Neighboring Lowell and Chelmsford, roughly 35 miles northwest of Beantown, have both attracted scores of high-tech companies and entrepreneurs to the region. Back in 1879, Lowell became the first American town with phone numbers, after Alexander Graham Bell demonstrated his telephone there two years prior. Later, Lowell served as the headquarters for Wang Laboratories, an early computer company that pulled in revenues upward of $3 billion a year and employed more than 33,000 people in the 1980s.

Aerial view of Lowell, Massachusetts

As part of the greater Boston metropolitan area, Lowell attracts scores of tech talent and businesses.

More recently, the bordering towns traded the headquarters of Kronos, a global cloud solutions provider for time management and optimization. With its Innovation Hub and Massachusetts Medical Device Development Center (M2D2), the University of Massachusetts Lowell campus offers a startup-friendly culture and co-working spaces. Scientific and technical services are among the leading industries in Chelmsford, and the region employs two times more computer specialists than the national average.

8. Seattle, Washington

Consistently ranking among the fastest-growing cities in the country, Seattle is a vibrant and bustling technology hub for the Pacific Northwest. In addition to Boeing tapping the region as a center for airline manufacturing, world-changing companies like Microsoft and Amazon trace their roots back to Seattle. In fact, Bill Gates was born in Seattle and continues to reside in nearby Medina. Roughly 10% of the region’s workforce — more than 2.5 times the national average — is employed in computer- or engineering-related fields.

Image of Seattle skyline

In addition to serving as an important port, Seattle has a strong and growing tech scene.

In addition to Microsoft and Amazon (and the ever-present Starbucks), other major brands call the Seattle area home, including Expedia, the U.S. divisions of Nintendo and T-Mobile, and several top healthcare and biotechnology organizations. With the region’s $15-per-hour minimum wage and a workforce with higher-than-average education, Seattle is a prosperous and desirable area to build or expand your tech company.

9. Washington, D.C.

With all the military installations, research facilities, and civilian contractors humming around the nation’s capital, it should be no surprise that Washington, D.C. makes our list as one of the country’s most tech-savvy cities. The D.C. area has the densest concentration of federally funded research and development programs, where programmers, entrepreneurs, engineers, and scientists can work in close proximity to decision makers and cutting-edge innovations. The region is home to many tech incubators and co-working spaces, and local entrepreneurs raised $2.7 billion dollars in venture capital funding in 2016.

Image of Memorial Bridge in Washington, D.C.

Washington, D.C. runs on more than politics and tourism — it boasts a strong, diverse tech community.

Washington D.C. stands out from other tech-savvy cities for its high levels of diversity; it’s among the top 10 locations for STEM diversity and is regularly recognized as the best city for women in technology. The area boasts one of the smallest gaps in gender pay and employs a higher proportion of women in computer- and math-related occupations than most other cities.

The 10 Least Tech-Savvy Cities

Just because an area isn’t considered tech-savvy doesn’t mean it isn’t thriving. For example, several regions on our list of the least technology-friendly areas play significant roles in the country’s agriculture, manufacturing, or transportation industries. That being said, most of the local economies on this list tend to be stagnant or on the decline, with unemployment rates higher than the national average and slower job market growth potential. Education rates are also usually lower than U.S. trends, along with access to computers and household internet connections.

Map of least tech-savvy cities in America

America’s least tech-savvy cities typically represent smaller populations and weak, though sometimes growing, economies.

Geographically speaking, half of the country’s least tech-savvy cities we’ve identified are along or near the Gulf Coast, with Alabama and Florida landing in four of the worst seven positions. Also on this list are cities in California and Texas located just off the coast and serve as important ports, similar to our Louisiana representative. Locations in Oregon, upstate New York, and near Chicago round out our roster of tech-averse towns.

10. Houma-Thibodaux, Louisiana

Although the region employs engineers at a rate similar to that of many cities on our most tech-savvy list, Houma and Thibodaux are more known for their roles in the seafood and oil industries than as a hot spot for innovative technology. Located less than an hour southwest of New Orleans, the region is steeped in French and Cajun influences that offers visitors delicious food and colorful, authentic experiences. Many in the area continue to work as shrimpers, oystermen, crabbers, and fishermen, while others have shifted into roles in the oil industry and shipbuilding.

Image of Houma, Louisiana, courthouse

Houma and Thibodaux’s regional economy largely depends on offshore oil drilling and support services.

The region’s remote areas down the bayou mean fewer people have access to computers or high-speed internet connections than the national average, and the lagging oilfield industry means unemployment rates are higher than elsewhere in the U.S. However, the region is looking to diversify its economy beyond oil and gas, eyeing growth in transportation, warehousing, and healthcare services as potential targets for innovation.

9. Albany, Oregon

Predominantly a farming and manufacturing town, Albany and the surrounding areas are major exporters of grass seed and producers of rare metals like zirconium, hafnium, and titanium. The decline of the region’s timber industry has led Albany, situated about 70 miles south of Portland, to expand more heavily into the retail and healthcare sectors. Albany residents enjoy higher-than-average access to computers and broadband internet but employ fewer than 30 STEM professionals per 1,000 jobs. Roughly 2% of the workforce is employed in engineering-related fields, while less than 1% works in computer, math, or science occupations.

Image of downtown Albany, Oregon

Albany draws on farming, food processing, and manufacturing industries to power its economy.

Perhaps the most exciting growth potential for Albany and the technology sector resides in the partnership between OFD Foods, a leader in freeze-dried foods, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and biological materials, and Seattle-based tech firm EnergG2 to make carbon electrode material that provides a greater power storage capacity for electric vehicles.

8. Kankakee, Illinois

Despite unemployment rates that are higher than the national average, employers in Kankakee, Illinois, are scrambling to fill high-level positions in a variety of industries. As with many areas on the list of least tech-savvy cities, Kankakee is finding new paths forward in traditionally dominant industries like food processing, manufacturing, and healthcare.

Image of downtown Kankakee, Illinois

Economic development programs aim to turn around Kankakee’s lagging economy.

The region, however, lags behind the national average when it comes to household computers and broadband internet connections. The area’s 76% of homes with computers and 63% of homes with high-speed internet are second-to-last among the other cities on our list, coming in only behind Laredo, Texas.

On the other hand, the area’s two enterprise zones have brought 6,500 jobs and more than $1 billion in capital investment to more than 250 projects, providing a rich environment for startups and entrepreneurs. Kankakee, roughly 60 miles south of Chicago, has also made huge strides in the renewable energy sector, particularly with training the workforce for emerging jobs in solar, wind, and geothermal industries.

7. Ocala, Florida

One of only five cities in the world permitted to label itself the “Horse Capital of the World,” Ocala banks much of its economy on the equine industry. The area supports more than 44,000 jobs in breeding, training, shows, and horse-related services, which generates more than $2.2 billion in revenue each year. Major employers include local, county and state governments, along with public education, healthcare, and grocery stores, though AT&T maintains a strong presence in Ocala.

Image of downtown Ocala, Florida

Ocala blends its vibrant equine industry with distribution and transportation facilities.

Ocala’s high school graduation rate follows national trends, but the city falls below the national average in terms of residents with a college degree. Roughly 2% of the workforce is employed in STEM-related fields, with an emphasis on engineering occupations. The Ocala region recently welcomed logistics facilities from AutoZone, FedEx, and Chewy, as well as major hospital expansions and new projects from local mainstays like Lockheed Martin and Emergency-One.

6. Glens Falls, New York

An area steeped in history, Glens Falls boasts several buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places — but not as many STEM-related jobs as one might expect from an area dominated by the healthcare industry and suppliers of medical devices. Companies in healthcare and human services make up five of the region’s top six largest employers, yet the area employs fewer than 23 people per 1,000 jobs in science, technology, engineering, and math.

Image of downtown Glens Falls, New York

Glens Falls boasts several historical buildings and a rich background in the financial industry.

Overall, the Glens Falls economy closely matches national averages when it comes to computer and broadband internet access and even outperforms the rest of the U.S. when it comes to unemployment rates and expected job growth. The future of the technology sector in Glens Falls looks bright, however, as companies like managed IT services provider StoredTech recently built its new headquarters in neighboring Queensbury.

5. Stockton-Lodi, California

Built during the California Gold Rush, the Stockton and Lodi region hasn’t continued to capitalize on its early prosperity — at least not in the technology sector. Lodi is best known for its wine grape production; Robert Mondavi grew up in the area and founded his influential Woodbridge winery in the nearby town of the same name. In addition to the wine industry, the Lodi area is home to several large manufacturing and agricultural operations.

Image of Stockton, California, waterfront

Stockton was the first community in the state to have a name not of Spanish or Native American origin when it was founded.

The much larger Stockton region, situated between San Francisco, Sacramento, and San Jose, is trying to emerge as an affordable place to establish small and regional businesses given its proximity to Silicon Valley. The city was disproportionately affected by the 2008 recession, leading to high rates of crime and foreclosures. With more than $700 million of debt, Stockton declared bankruptcy in 2012 and emerged three years later. After introducing a basic income initiative in which selected residents receive $500 per month for 18 months, the region may be poised for a turnaround.

4. Dothan, Alabama

Home of the “World’s Smallest Block,” Dothan, Alabama, is more known for its agricultural prowess than technology. The region, located in the southeast corner of the state, produces and processes roughly a quarter of the country’s peanut crop and hosts the annual National Peanut Festival. Cotton and tomatoes have emerged in recent years as successful crops, while the area’s hospitals, schools, and government remain the top employers. Dothan employs just 19 STEM professionals per 1,000 jobs, according to census data, with a slight lean toward engineering professions. The area is below the national average for access to computers and broadband internet but is closer to national educational attainment rates.

Image of downtown Dothan, Alabama

In addition to agricultural success, Dothan also once hosted factories for Sony, Michelin, and General Electric.

Job growth is on the rise, though the region’s unemployment rate is lower than the U.S. average. Behind the Grow Dothan public/private partnership, the region has created more than 17,000 jobs and attracted more than $1 billion in investments over the past 20 years.

3. Punta Gorda, Florida

With an aging population and scenic waterfront, Punta Gorda — Spanish for “fat point” — is more of an idyllic retreat than a bustling tech town. More than 55% of the town’s population is 65 years old and over, much higher than the country’s 16% average. Although the southwest Florida region’s workforce is much smaller than other towns, Punta Gorda closely follows the national average for unemployment and growth in the job market and is slightly ahead of U.S. trends regarding household computer and high-speed internet access, as well as educational attainment, home ownership, and per capita income.

Images of Punta Gorda city hall and Villla Bianca

Punta Gorda’s city hall building (left) and the historic Villa Bianca (right) showcase the tranquil beauty of the area.

Retail, healthcare, and the tourism industries lead the workforce in Punta Gorda, followed by education, government, and construction. Without the sandy white beaches to draw visitors, the area relies on its natural beauty and vibrant arts and culture. Its central location between Sarasota and Fort Myers gives Punta Gorda a refreshing mix of activities, innovation, and recreation.

2. Laredo, Texas

Situated on the northern bank of the Rio Grande River, Laredo, Texas, is the third most-populated city along the U.S.-Mexico border. Given the city’s location and overwhelmingly Hispanic and Latino population — 95.4% of residents identify as such, according to census data — much of Laredo’s economy is dependent on transportation and trade with Mexico, instead of technology.

Image of the Plaza Theatre in Laredo, Texas

Although Laredo has an above-average job market, it only employs 13 STEM-related jobs per 1,000 occupations.

The area, which is the largest inland port in America, lags far behind national averages when it comes to access to technology and education; less than 18% of the population has a bachelor’s degree or higher, slightly more than half of the U.S. rate of 33.4$, according to census figures. The area’s 73% of homes with computers and 58% of homes with high-speed internet are last among the other cities on our list.

Interestingly, Laredo is known for its annual celebration of George Washington’s birthday, which attracts more than 400,000 people each year — despite the fact the country’s first president never visited nor even knew of Laredo’s existence.

1. Daphne-Foley, Alabama

Although the area can trace its roots to Native American tribes around 9000 B.C., modern-day Daphne is a thriving suburb of Mobile, Alabama — just not in terms of technology and innovation. Instead, the region has found success in healthcare, education, and retail operations, along with the recent opening of an Airbus manufacturing plant that brought around 1,000 jobs to the area. After being labeled one of the top 10 cities adding the most jobs in 2017, the Daphne and Foley region has come more in line with the national averages for unemployment and job growth. From 2010 to 2017, the area grew its population by an estimated 22%.

Image of aerial view of Daphne, Alabama

The rapidly growing Daphne and Foley areas of Alabama, across the bay from Mobile, are primed for expansion.

Despite employing only 13 STEM-related professionals per 1,000 jobs, Daphne, Foley, and the surrounding Baldwin County towns represent strong growth for aerospace, manufacturing, and distribution facilities. While much of the region’s workforce training coalitions focus on industrial careers, renewed emphasis has been placed on luring more software, IT, and medical technology firms to the rapidly-growing region.

Methodology and Sources

To compile our lists, we first expanded our definition of technology beyond just software development and computer programming to include the full range of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) professions.

We gathered 2017 U.S. Census Bureau data (the most recent available) that gauged the highest concentration of jobs in computing and mathematics, architecture and engineering, and science. By looking at local concentrations of STEM occupations, we were able to better examine the role technology plays in various locales without the massive populations of the nation’s largest cities skewing the results.

Once we calculated the number of STEM occupations per 1,000 jobs and cross-referenced our list with the Census Bureau’s state-by-state definition of requirements for incorporated cities, we also examined the Census QuickFacts and profiles of each area to learn about demographics, educational attainment, and household access to computers and broadband internet connections. Other economic data came from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and Sperling’s Best Places, while images came from Shutterstock, Wikimedia Commons, and Flickr.
