Occupations and Workforce
Golden Beach is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 94.23% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Golden Beach is a town of professionals, managers and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Golden Beach who work in management occupations (25.48%), sales jobs (16.83%) and healthcare (11.54%).
Of important note, Golden Beach is also a town of artists. Golden Beach has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Golden Beach’s character.
Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 9.13% 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.
Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Golden Beach is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the town’s population swells significantly during the vacation season, and drops again when the season ends. Because of this, much of the local economy is centered around tourism; some businesses may be operated only during the high season. During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially quieter place to live.
Because of many things, Golden Beach is a great place for families with children to consider. First of all, many other families with children live here, making Golden Beach a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families, as well as find family-oriented services and community. The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic values. With regard to real estate, Golden Beach has a high rate of owner-occupied single family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community. Finally, Golden Beach’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.
Golden 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.
