St. James City is a very small coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Florida. With a population of 4,114 people and just one neighborhood, St. James City is the 300th largest community in Florida.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, St. James City is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, St. James City is a town of professionals, sales and office workers and construction workers and builders. There are especially a lot of people living in St. James City who work in healthcare (22.41%), sales jobs (14.49%) and office and administrative support (12.22%).
Also of interest is that St. James City has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that St. James City is an extremely popular vacation destination. A significant portion of the population is seasonal. During the vacation season, the town experiences a large influx of people who take up residence in second homes they own in the area. As the vacation season ends, the population drops again, leaving behind a substantially quieter and smaller town.
Residents will find that the town is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, St. James City is worth considering.
One of the nice things about St. James City is that it is nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Because of this, visitors and locals will often go to these areas to take in the scenery or to enjoy waterfront activities.
In St. James City, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 30.51 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average.
As is often the case in a small town, St. James City doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
