Marineland is a neighborhood that is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Many times, such places have amenities that bring locals and visitors to the
waterfront for recreational activities or to check out the scenery.
In some densely populated areas that are less financially well-off, the neighborhood
waterfront can be relatively industrial and less open to recreation.
In addition to being coastal, Marineland is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.
One of the notable things about Marineland is that it is one of the quietest neighborhoods in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis and quantitative rating of quietness. When you are here, you will find it to be very quiet. If quiet and peaceful are your cup of tea, you may have found a great place for you.
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Marineland neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 60.0%, which is higher than 99.3% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, homes built from 2000 through today make up a higher proportion of the Marineland neighborhood's real estate landscape than 97.3% of the neighborhoods in America. When you are driving around this neighborhood, you'll notice right away that it is one of the newest built of any, with the smell of fresh paint, and the look of young landscaping nearly everywhere you look. In fact, 59.1% of the residential real estate here is classified as newer.

Did you know that the Marineland neighborhood has more
Brazilian and Austrian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 6.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Brazilian ancestry and 2.5% have Austrian ancestry.
Marineland is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 6.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Portuguese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher

revealed that the Marineland neighborhood is a fantastic
option for bicycle commuters, as 14.3% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 99.7% of the neighborhoods in America.
Also, in the Marineland neighborhood, many people's commute means
walking from the bedroom to the home office. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
found that 22.3% of residents worked from home. This may not
