Overall, Helen is a city of sales and office workers, service providers and professionals.

Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Helen 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, Helen’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.
Helen 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.
