Arriving in Bloomington for the first time, you might expect you're in Colorado or a suburb of Seattle rather than nestled in the Midwest. Home to Indiana University, Bloomington attracts all the "ies" - techies, foodies, hippies, not to mention artists, entrepreneurs, basketball fanatics, outdoor enthusiasts and Tibetan monks (more on that below). The community refers to itself as a "blue dot in a red state" and prides itself in being socially conscious and highly educated - one of the most educated populations in the country, actually. Bloomington Remote is a program offered through The Mill, the community's nonprofit center for co-working and entrepreneurship. If accepted, new movers will receive a three-year co-working membership to The Mill, valued at $2,200 annually. Program participants also receive concierge-level support in getting resettled and acclimated to the community. Bloomington checks the boxes for remote workers who want to give up the expense of living in a world-class community without losing the amenities they enjoy.
