There are especially a lot of people living in San Simeon who work in maintenance occupations (42.57%), food service (14.29%), and sales jobs (2.92%).

Setting & Lifestyle

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!) San Simeon 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. San Simeon has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in San Simeon than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, San Simeon may be for you.

One of the nice things about San Simeon 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.

Residents of the town have the good fortune of having one of the shortest daily commutes compared to the rest of the country. On average, they spend only 16.31 minutes getting to work every day.

As is often the case in a small town, San Simeon doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
