When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing
is often the way it looks, like its homes and its setting. Some places look
the same, but they only reveal their true character after living in them for
a while because they contain a unique mix of occupational or cultural groups.
This neighborhood is very unique in some important ways, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive exploration and analysis.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Uncrowded roads, rural America and space to be the individual you are. If you like these characteristics, this neighborhood may fit you. With just 6.03 residents per square mile, Peninsula Village / Foxwood is less crowded than 98.1% of all U.S. neighborhoods. One of the notable things about Peninsula Village / Foxwood is that it is one of the quietest neighborhoods in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis and quantitative rating of quietness. When you are here, you will find it to be very quiet. If quiet and peaceful are your cup of tea, you may have found a great place for you.
In addition, vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 69.4% of the residential real estate vacant, the Peninsula Village / Foxwood neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 99.7% of the neighborhoods in America. This can either be because much of the property is seasonally occupied, like in many vacation areas, or that much of the real estate is more permanently abandoned.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Peninsula Village / Foxwood
neighborhood, analysis shows that 20.4% 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
99.5% of the neighborhoods in the United States.
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.
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
Peninsula Village / Foxwood neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 9.5%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 98.7% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
Astoundingly, NeighborhoodScout's research reveals that this single
neighborhood has a higher concentration of married couples living here
than 98.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Whether they have
school-aged children or not, married couples are the rule in the
Peninsula Village / Foxwood neighborhood. If you are a married couple, you may find many
people here with a similar lifestyle, and perhaps common interests. But if
you are single, you might not find many other singles here.
In addition, if you're nearing retirement age, or in retirement, the
Peninsula Village / Foxwood neighborhood is an excellent choice for you to consider
for top-quality retirement living. This neighborhood is rated by
NeighborhoodScout as among the top 9.6% of retiree-friendly
neighborhoods in California, combining peace and quiet, safety from
crime, and offering diverse housing options from which retirees can
choose. Maybe it's because of these amenities that a large proportion
of the residents here are college educated seniors, mixed with other
age groups. For these and other reasons, NeighborhoodScout identifies
this neighborhood as a top-notch place to consider if you are thinking
of or planning to retire in California.
Notable & Unique: Diversity

Welsh and Swiss ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.2% of
