Setting & Lifestyle
In addition, Inverness is home to many people who could be described as "urban sophisticates". Urban sophisticates are people who are both educated and wealthy, and thus tend to be older, richer, and more established than young professionals. "Urban sophisticates" is not just about being educated and well-off financially: it is a point of view and state of mind, one that you might call 'urbaneness'. But such people can and do regularly live in small towns, suburbs and rural areas, as well as in big cities. They read, support the arts and high-end shops, and love travel.
Because of many things, Inverness is a very good place for families to consider. With an enviable combination of good schools, low crime, college-educated neighbors who tend to support education because of their own experiences, and a high rate of home ownership in predominantly single-family properties, Inverness really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Inverness perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly place to live.
One downside of living in Inverness, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 33.76 minutes every day commuting to work.

Despite being a small village, Inverness has a lot of people using the train to get to and from work every day. Most of these people on the train are using it to get to good jobs in other cities.
