Would you like to be able to ride your bike to work? If you are attracted
to the idea of getting a little exercise of the two-wheeled type while
reducing your carbon footprint, bicycling to work might be the answer.
But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or
alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
revealed that the Lake Tahoe Blvd / Tahoe Mt Rd neighborhood is a fantastic
option for bicycle commuters, as 3.2% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 95.1% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, this Lake Tahoe Blvd / Tahoe Mt Rd neighborhood has earned the amazing distinction of having one of the highest rates of detached, single-family homes of any neighborhood in the U.S. With 99.4% of the residential real estate here made up of free-standing single-family homes, there is a greater proportion of single-family homes here than in 98.9% of all neighborhoods in America.
Furthermore, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Lake Tahoe Blvd / Tahoe Mt Rd neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 49.2%, which is higher than 98.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
