LaBelle is a very small city located in the state of Florida. With a population of 5,065 people and five constituent neighborhoods, LaBelle is the 285th largest community in Florida.
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 8.80% 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.
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.

If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
