Setting & Lifestyle

Hooper Bay is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Such areas are often places that visitors and locals go for waterfront activities or taking in the scenery.
Compared to the rest of the country, citizens of Hooper Bay spend much less time in their cars: on average, their commute to work is only 7.98 minutes. This also means that noise and pollution levels in the city are less than they would otherwise be.
As is often the case in a small city, Hooper Bay doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
