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 Napa,
the Linda Vista Ave / Trower Ave neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
If you like to ride a ferry to work, this neighborhood may be for you.

neighborhood's commuters ride a ferry to and from work each day, which is more than we found in
99.2% of America's neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity

Portuguese and Croatian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have Portuguese ancestry and 1.2% have Croatian ancestry.
Linda Vista Ave / Trower Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.7% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Native American languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.7% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
It used to be that most Americans lived on the farm, or otherwise made their
living from the land, the forests, or the sea. With global trade and an
economy increasingly based on providing services to one another, fewer
people farm, fish or harvest timber now than at any time in American history.
But according to NeighborhoodScout's leading analysis, the
Linda Vista Ave / Trower Ave neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 3.9%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 95.1% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
The Linda Vista Ave / Trower Ave neighborhood is a great option for families,
as revealed by NeighborhoodScout's research on this neighborhood. The
combination of top public schools, low crime rates, and owner-occupied
single family homes, make this neighborhood among the top
6.2% of family-friendly neighborhoods in the
state of California. Many other families also live here, making
it easy to socialize and develop a sense of community. In addition,
families here highly value education, as is reflected by the strength of
the local schools.
In addition to being an excellent choice for families with school-aged children, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for college students.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, this Linda Vista Ave / Trower Ave neighborhood has earned the amazing distinction of having one of the highest rates of detached, single-family homes of any neighborhood in the U.S. With 97.2% of the residential real estate here made up of free-standing single-family homes, there is a greater proportion of single-family homes here than in 96.0% of all neighborhoods in America.
Furthermore, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Linda Vista Ave / Trower Ave stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing. What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age. In fact, 83.2% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Also of note, this neighborhood has the distinction of having one of the lowest real estate vacancy rates of any neighborhood in America. With just 1.2% of the real estate vacant, this indicates an exceptionally strong demand for real estate in the Linda Vista Ave / Trower Ave neighborhood, and/or an issue with creating enough supply for the demand. This could have the effect of increasing real estate prices, increasing supply to meet demand, or both.
