Grand Isle Profile


Overview

Grand Isle is a very small coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Louisiana. With a population of 1,399 people and just one neighborhood, Grand Isle is the 196th largest community in Louisiana.

Grand Isle real estate is some of the most expensive in Louisiana, although Grand Isle house values don't compare to the most expensive real estate in the U.S.

Occupations and Workforce

Because occupations involving physical labor dominate the local economy, Grand Isle is generally considered to be a blue-collar town. 40.00% of the Grand Isle workforce is employed in blue-collar occupations, compared to the national average of 27.7%. Overall, Grand Isle is a town of sales and office workers, service providers, and construction workers and builders. There are especially a lot of people living in Grand Isle who work in office and administrative support (16.44%), sales jobs (9.78%), and food service (7.33%).

There are many members of the armed forces living in Grand Isle. You will notice when you visit or live here that some of the people you meet or see around town are employed by the armed services - even if they are not always in uniform.


Setting & Lifestyle

Another notable thing is that Grand Isle 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.

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

Grand Isle is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Quite often, nautical areas such as these attract visitors and locals who come to enjoy the scenery and various waterfront activities.

Residents of the town have the good fortune of having one of the shortest daily commutes compared to the rest of the country. On average, they spend only 13.14 minutes getting to work every day.

Being a small town, Grand Isle does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.

The population of Grand Isle has a very low overall level of education: only 6.52% of people over 25 hold a 4-year college degree or higher.
