A relatively large number of people in Inglis telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 14.41% 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.
Setting & Lifestyle
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!) Inglis 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. Inglis has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Inglis than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Inglis may be for you.
Inglis 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.
Inglis is a small town, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
