Setting & Lifestyle

As the vacation season ends, the population drops again, leaving behind a substantially quieter and smaller town.
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!) Tubac 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. Tubac has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Tubac than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Tubac may be for you.
Being a small town, Tubac does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
