Quite honestly there are too many people offering web design nowadays.
...than why do i see so many #*$!ty sites? ;-)
...there is always place for a good web designer. I would go freelance and see how it goes. There are several freelance platforms you can try out. While you do compete against low dollar per hours worker from asia or eastern europe, many many prefer a western contractor for various reasons.
I just started recently to investigate the wedding niche for a client. And after thousands of websites looked at, i can assure you; there are many wedding niche websites that are in desperate need for a good web designer.(and every second site played some damm country music)
...so go freelance and specialize, become THE wedding niche webdesigner and redo all those ugly websites and silence their sound... ;)
