Places for a temporary digital nomad.

I am not a digital nomad. However, because my company is moving office locations, I will be forced to work from home for a couple of days in late October/early November. So rather than be stuck at home, I was considering finding somewhere to do work. My requirements really are a place with reasonably priced hotels, reliable wifi, and there is something going on for me to do. FYI I live in New York City.

My early considerations

London
Pros
Reasonable fares from JFK
Time difference allows me to explore and still work the normal East Coast US hours

Cons
Hotels are expensive
Long flights

Orlando
Pros
Only 2.5 hour flight from NYC
Epcot center food festival
Reasonable priced hotels with good wifi

Cons
I'd been there already this year

Atlantic City
Pros
Only two hour bus ride from NYC

Cons
Nothing to do in November if you don't gamble

Are you limited to the states only? No matter where you pick it will be expensive as hell! Many cheaper options around the world that are so much cheaper they easily cover the more expensive airfare.

I'm not limited to the states but as it will only be a couple of days, not really worth going too far. Plus, I still need to be available for conference calls and the like.
