Most Expensive Bethany Beach Neighborhoods
|2||Brighton Trl / Greenway|
Bethany Beach is a very small coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Delaware. With a population of 1,122 people and two constituent neighborhoods, Bethany Beach is the 33rd largest community in Delaware.
Bethany Beach home prices are not only among the most expensive in Delaware, but Bethany Beach real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.
Bethany Beach is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 92.21% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Bethany Beach is a town of managers, professionals and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Bethany Beach who work in management occupations (26.23%), sales jobs (12.70%) and teaching (10.25%).
There are many members of the armed forces living in Bethany Beach. You will notice when you visit or live here that some of the people you meet or see around town are employed by the armed services - even if they are not always in uniform.
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 13.71% of the workforce. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce this is high compared to the rest of the county. These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.
Another notable thing is that Bethany Beach is an extremely popular vacation destination. A significant portion of the population is seasonal. During the vacation season, the town experiences a large influx of people who take up residence in second homes they own in the area. As the vacation season ends, the population drops again, leaving behind a substantially quieter and smaller town.
It is a fairly quiet town because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Bethany Beach has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Bethany Beach has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Bethany Beach than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Bethany Beach may be for you.
Bethany Beach is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Quite often, nautical areas such as these attract visitors and locals who come to enjoy the scenery and various waterfront activities.
As is often the case in a small town, Bethany Beach doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
The citizens of Bethany Beach are among the most well-educated in the nation: 47.09% of adults in Bethany Beach have a bachelor's degree or even advanced degree, whereas the average US city has 21.84% holding at least a bachelor's degree.
