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.

in the company of one of the wealthiest communities in the nation. In
fact, a mere 1.5% of America's neighborhoods are wealthier than the
Las Dos neighborhood. Real estate here is exceedingly
well-maintained, and similarly, tends to maintain its value over time.
The cars driven are mostly luxury brands like Mercedes, Audi, BMW, and
Lexus. If the public schools aren't up to snuff, the residents of this
neighborhood preferentially send their children to private preparatory
schools. Vacation to Disney? Yes, but equally popular are summers in Europe.
As one would expect in a considerably wealthy neighborhood such as this,
Las Dos also has one of the lowest ratings of child
poverty in the nation.

truly successful marriage, but according to NeighborhoodScout's research,
the folks of the Las Dos neighborhood may actually hold
the key. 75.3% of its residents are married, which is a higher
percentage than is found in 99.5% of the neighborhoods
