St. James City is a very small coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Florida. With a population of 3,784 people and just one neighborhood, St. James City is the 300th largest community in Florida.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, St. James City is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, St. James City is a town of sales and office workers, professionals and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in St. James City who work in sales jobs (15.78%), healthcare (13.79%) and office and administrative support (13.01%).
Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that St. James City is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the town’s population swells significantly during the vacation season, and drops again when the season ends. Because of this, much of the local economy is centered around tourism; some businesses may be operated only during the high season. During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially quieter place to live.
Residents will find that the town is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, St. James City is worth considering.
St. James City 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.
Being a small town, St. James City does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
