Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Tucker is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the town’s population swells significantly during the vacation season, and drops again when the season ends. Because of this, much of the local economy is centered around tourism; some businesses may be operated only during the high season. During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially 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!) Tucker 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. Tucker has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Tucker than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Tucker may be for you.
Tucker is very much a car-oriented town. This is because the population of Tucker isn't large enough or dense enough to support an extensive public transit system. It has a lot of rural roads, and the distance between houses can be quite large, which together tends to discourage walking and bicycling to work. 100.00% of residents commute to work in their own car (and the drive is typically to a job out of town). People also tend to drive out of town for other services as well, such as shopping, doctors appointments, and more.
Tucker is a small town, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
