Setting & Lifestyle

Because of many things, Alden is a great place for families with children to consider. First of all, many other families with children live here, making Alden a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families, as well as find family-oriented services and community. The city’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic values. With regard to real estate, Alden has a high rate of owner-occupied single family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community. Finally, Alden’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the country, making it one of the safest places to raise a family.

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, Alden has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Alden a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.

Residents of the city have the good fortune of having one of the shortest daily commutes compared to the rest of the country. On average, they spend only 18.07 minutes getting to work every day.

Alden 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.
