One thing noticeable about Wheaton, although not a huge city, is that it has a large population of people who are young, single, educated, and upwardly-mobile career starters. That’s because Wheaton is full of single people in their 20s and 30s and who have undergraduate or graduate degrees and are starting careers in professional occupations. This makes Wheaton a pretty good place for young, educated career starters looking to find many people like themselves, with good opportunities for friendships, socializing, romance, and fun.
Wheaton is a good choice for families with children because of several factors. Many other families with children live here, making it a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families. The city’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic success. Many people own their own single-family homes, providing areas for children to play and stability in the community. Finally, Wheaton’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the country, making it one of the safest places to raise a family.
Like elsewhere in America, most people in Wheaton use a private automobile to get to work. But notably, a substantial number of Wheaton‘s citizens do make use of public transit in their daily commute, primarily riding the train. This helps more people get to work with less air pollution, and require fewer highways to get them there.
If knowledge is power, Wheaton is a pretty powerful place. 61.09% of the adults in Wheaton have earned a 4-year college degree, masters degree, MD, law degree, or even PhD. Compare that to the national average of 21.84% for all cities and towns.
