Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Earp is an extremely popular vacation destination. A significant portion of the population is seasonal. During the vacation season, the town experiences a large influx of people who take up residence in second homes they own in the area. 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!) Earp 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. Earp has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Earp than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Earp may be for you.
One of the benefits of Earp is that there is very little traffic. The average commute to work is 17.90 minutes, which is substantially less than the national average. Not only does this mean that the drive to work is less aggravating, but noise and pollution levels are lower as a result.
Being a small town, Earp does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
