La Honda Profile


Overview

La Honda is a tiny coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of California. With a population of 991 people and just one neighborhood, La Honda is the 714th largest community in California.

La Honda home prices are not only among the most expensive in California, but La Honda real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.

Occupations and Workforce

La Honda is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 91.43% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, La Honda is a town of professionals, managers, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in La Honda who work in management occupations (22.86%), teaching (11.11%), and personal care services (10.79%).

And if you like science, one thing you'll find is that La Honda 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.

Of important note, La Honda is also a town of artists. La Honda has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape La Honda’s character.

Also of interest is that La Honda has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.

A relatively large number of people in La Honda telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 14.29% of the workforce works from home. While this may seem like a small number, as a fraction of the total workforce it ranks among the highest in the country. 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

One of the nice things about La Honda is that it is nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Because of this, visitors and locals will often go to these areas to take in the scenery or to enjoy waterfront activities.

One downside of living in La Honda is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In La Honda, the average commute to work is 42.39 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average.
