Flagler Beach is a very small coastal city (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Florida. With a population of 4,747 people and two constituent neighborhoods, Flagler Beach is the 285th largest community in Florida.
Unlike some cities, Flagler Beach isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Flagler Beach are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Flagler Beach is a city of sales and office workers, professionals and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Flagler Beach who work in sales jobs (22.54%), management occupations (17.06%) and office and administrative support (7.50%).
Of important note, Flagler Beach is also a city of artists. Flagler Beach has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Flagler Beach’s character.
Also of interest is that Flagler Beach has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
A relatively large number of people in Flagler Beach telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 12.86% of the workforce works from home. While this may seem like a small number, as a fraction of the total workforce it ranks among the highest in the country. 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 Flagler Beach is an extremely popular vacation destination. A significant portion of the population is seasonal. During the vacation season, the city 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 city.
The city is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. For example, Flagler Beach has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Flagler Beach a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
Flagler Beach 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. Quite often, nautical areas such as these attract visitors and locals who come to enjoy the scenery and various waterfront activities.
As is often the case in a small city, Flagler Beach doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
