Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Garrison is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the city’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.
Overall, Garrison’s crime rate is one of the lowest in the nation, which makes a great place to live if safety is an important concern.

Garrison is a small city, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
