Tierra Verde is a neighborhood that is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Many times, such places have amenities that bring locals and visitors to the
waterfront for recreational activities or to check out the scenery.
In some densely populated areas that are less financially well-off, the neighborhood
waterfront can be relatively industrial and less open to recreation.
In addition to being coastal, Tierra Verde is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.
One of the notable things about Tierra Verde is that it is one of the quietest neighborhoods in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis and quantitative rating of quietness. When you are here, you will find it to be very quiet. If quiet and peaceful are your cup of tea, you may have found a great place for you.
