Bokeelia is a very small coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Florida. With a population of 2,061 people and two constituent neighborhoods, Bokeelia is the 373rd largest community in Florida.
Housing costs in Bokeelia 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 Florida.
Unlike some towns, Bokeelia isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Bokeelia are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Bokeelia is a town of professionals, sales and office workers and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Bokeelia who work in healthcare (16.45%), management occupations (13.53%) and sales jobs (12.73%).
Also of interest is that Bokeelia has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 7.71% of people work from home. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce it is high relative to the nation. 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.
Another notable thing is that Bokeelia is an extremely popular vacation destination. A significant portion of the population is seasonal. During the vacation season, the town experiences a large influx of people who take up residence in second homes they own in the area. As the vacation season ends, the population drops again, leaving behind a substantially quieter and smaller town.
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!) Bokeelia 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. Bokeelia has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Bokeelia than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Bokeelia may be for you.
Bokeelia is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Such areas are often places that visitors and locals go for waterfront activities or taking in the scenery.
One downside of living in Bokeelia is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Bokeelia, the average commute to work is 34.54 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average. On the other hand, local public transit is widely used in the town, so leaving the car at home and taking transit is often a viable alternative.
In Bokeelia, a lot of people use the bus to get to work every day though Bokeelia is a relatively small town. Those that ride the bus are primarily traveling out of town to good jobs in other cities.
The education level of Bokeelia citizens is very high relative to the national average among all cities (21.84%): 36.21% of adults in Bokeelia have a bachelor's degree or even advanced degree.
The per capita income in Bokeelia in 2010 was $27,459, which is upper middle income relative to Florida and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $109,836 for a family of four. However, Bokeelia contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
The people who call Bokeelia home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups.

Important ancestries of people in Bokeelia include German, Scottish, Irish, English, French and Norwegian.
