Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Garrison is a major vacation destination. Much of the city’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, Garrison’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.
Garrison’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the nation, making it a very safe place to live.
The city 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, Garrison has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Garrison a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
As is often the case in a small city, Garrison doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
