Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that St. James City 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.
The town is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. For example, St. James City has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes St. James City a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
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.
As is often the case in a small town, St. James City doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
