Trinidad is a tiny coastal city (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of California. With a population of 357 people and just one neighborhood, Trinidad is the 749th largest community in California.
Real Estate Prices
Housing costs in Trinidad are among some of the highest in the nation, although real estate prices here don't compare to real estate prices in the most expensive communities in California.
Occupations and Workforce
Trinidad is a decidedly white-collar city, with fully 95.10% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Trinidad is a city of professionals, service providers and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Trinidad who work in teaching (17.48%), management occupations (15.38%) and office and administrative support (11.89%).
Of important note, Trinidad is also a city of artists. Trinidad has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Trinidad’s character.
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 36.84% of the workforce. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce this is high compared to the rest of the county. 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 Trinidad 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.
Trinidad is a small city, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
