Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that St. James City is a major vacation destination. Much of the town’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season. The effect on the local economy is that many of the businesses are dependent on tourist dollars, and may operate only during the high season. As the vacation season ends, St. James City’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.
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.
Being a small town, St. James City does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
