Most Expensive Marco Island Neighborhoods

Marco Island is a decidedly white-collar city, with fully 90.29% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Marco Island is a city of sales and office workers, managers and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Marco Island who work in management occupations (20.24%), sales jobs (18.02%) and office and administrative support (9.06%).
Of important note, Marco Island is also a city of artists. Marco Island has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Marco Island’s character.
A relatively large number of people in Marco Island telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 12.47% 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 Marco Island is a major vacation destination. Much of the city’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season. The effect on the local economy is that many of the businesses are dependent on tourist dollars, and may operate only during the high season. As the vacation season ends, Marco Island’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.
The overall crime rate in Marco Island is one of the lowest in the US. This makes it one of the safer places to live in the country in terms of crime.
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, Marco Island has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Marco Island a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
Marco Island 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. Such areas are often places that visitors and locals go for waterfront activities or taking in the scenery.

Marco Island is a small city, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
