When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing
is often the way it looks, like its homes and its setting. Some places look
the same, but they only reveal their true character after living in them for
a while because they contain a unique mix of occupational or cultural groups.
This neighborhood is very unique in some important ways, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive exploration and analysis.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Huerfano / Lake Valley neighborhood has more
Native American ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 78.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Native American ancestry.
Huerfano / Lake Valley is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 49.9% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Navajo at home. This is a higher percentage than 99.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Unpopulated, and rural, the Huerfano / Lake Valley neighborhood is one of the least crowded neighborhoods in all of America. If you like open space, no traffic, and lots of room, this neighborhood may be just what you are looking for. According to NeighborhoodScout's leading research, this neighborhood is less densely populated than 98.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
In addition, the real estate in this neighborhood consists of more mobile homes than 96.5% of all neighborhoods in America, with 33.8% of the occupied housing here being classified as mobile homes. So if you are looking for a mobile home, or you like the look and feel of mobile home parks, this neighborhood might have the setting you desire.
Furthermore, vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 32.8% of the residential real estate vacant, the Huerfano / Lake Valley neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 95.4% of the neighborhoods in America. This can either be because much of the property is seasonally occupied, like in many vacation areas, or that much of the real estate is more permanently abandoned.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Whether walking, biking, riding, or driving, the length of one's commute
is an important factor for one's quality of life. The Huerfano / Lake Valley
neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's
Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less
of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the
Huerfano / Lake Valley neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having,
on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.
11.7% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way
to work. That is more than two hours per day. This percentage with two-hour +
round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 98.4%
of all neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People

of the adult residents in the Huerfano / Lake Valley neighborhood do
not have a 4-year college degree, which is a lower rate of college graduated
adults than found in 95.1% of the neighborhoods in America.
