Perdido Beach Profile


Overview

Perdido Beach is a tiny coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Alabama. With a population of 649 people and just one neighborhood, Perdido Beach is the 331st largest community in Alabama.

Occupations and Workforce

Perdido Beach is neither predominantly blue-collar nor white-collar, instead having a mixed workforce of both blue-collar and white-collar jobs. Overall, Perdido Beach is a town of professionals, sales and office workers, and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Perdido Beach who work in management occupations (16.04%), office and administrative support (10.70%), and teaching (10.70%).

And if you like science, one thing you'll find is that Perdido Beach has lots of scientists living in town - whether they be life scientists, physical scientists (like astronomers), or social scientists (like geographers!). So, if you're scientific-minded, you might like it here too.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 10.70% of the workforce. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce this is high compared to the rest of the county. These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.

Setting & Lifestyle

Another notable thing is that Perdido Beach is a major vacation destination. Much of the town’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, Perdido Beach’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.

It is a fairly quiet town because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Perdido Beach has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Perdido Beach has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Perdido Beach than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Perdido Beach may be for you.

Perdido Beach 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.

One downside of living in Perdido Beach is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Perdido Beach, the average commute to work is 31.39 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average.

Being a small town, Perdido Beach does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
