Living in Hernando

Hernando is a somewhat small town located in the state of Florida. With a population of 9,284 people and five associated neighborhoods, Hernando is the 217th largest community in Florida.

Of important note, Hernando is also a town of artists. Hernando has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Hernando’s character.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 12.50% of the workforce. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce this is high compared to the rest of the county. 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.

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!) Hernando 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. Hernando has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Hernando than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Hernando may be for you.
