Lake City is a tiny town located in the state of Colorado. With a population of 378 people and just one neighborhood, Lake City is the 203rd largest community in Colorado.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns, Lake City isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Lake City are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Lake City is a town of sales and office workers, construction workers and builders and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Lake City who work in office and administrative support (20.00%), sales jobs (11.05%) and management occupations (10.53%).
Of important note, Lake City is also a town of artists. Lake City has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Lake City’s character.
Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Lake City is a major vacation destination. Much of the town’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season. The effect on the local economy is that many of the businesses are dependent on tourist dollars, and may operate only during the high season. As the vacation season ends, Lake City’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.
Lake City’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the nation, making it a very safe place to live.
Residents will find that the town is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, Lake City is worth considering.
One of the benefits of Lake City is that there is very little traffic. The average commute to work is 13.12 minutes, which is substantially less than the national average. Not only does this mean that the drive to work is less aggravating, but noise and pollution levels are lower as a result.
Being a small town, Lake City does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
