It is a fairly quiet village because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Sun has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Sun has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Sun than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Sun may be for you.
One downside of living in Sun is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Sun, the average commute to work is 41.28 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average.
Sun is very much a car-oriented village. This is because the population of Sun isn't large enough or dense enough to support an extensive public transit system. It has a lot of rural roads, and the distance between houses can be quite large, which together tends to discourage walking and bicycling to work. 96.74% of residents commute to work in their own car (and the drive is typically to a job out of town). People also tend to drive out of town for other services as well, such as shopping, doctors appointments, and more.
As is often the case in a small village, Sun doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
