Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Hemet,
the W Whittier Ave / Santa Clara Cir neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Whether walking, biking, riding, or driving, the length of one's commute
is an important factor for one's quality of life. The W Whittier Ave / Santa Clara Cir
neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's
Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less
of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the
W Whittier Ave / Santa Clara Cir neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having,
on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.
17.8% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way
to work. That is more than two hours per day. This percentage with two-hour +
round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.7%
of all neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations

employed as sales and service workers (43.3%) than almost any neighborhood
in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts,
sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national
employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this
neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people
living here who work in such occupations.
Notable & Unique: People
Astoundingly, the W Whittier Ave / Santa Clara Cir neighborhood has one of the highest
concentrations of divorcees living here than of any neighborhood, a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.3%
of U.S. neighborhoods. This may be because people living here divorce

this particular Hemet neighborhood.

Native American and Finnish ancestry people living in it than nearly

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the W Whittier Ave / Santa Clara Cir
neighborhood, analysis shows that 12.2% of the residents work
from home, avoiding a commute altogether. This may not seem like a large number,
but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in

One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or
more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who
choose to work from home.

Most neighborhoods have a mixture of home or apartment sizes from small to large, but here the concentration of studios and other small living spaces is at near-record heights. With 89.3% of the real estate here of this small size, this most assuredly is a notable feature that makes this neighborhood unique, along with just a handful of other neighborhoods in the U.S. that share this characteristic.
