Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Denmark & Brownfield is a major vacation destination. Much of the town’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season. The effect on the local economy is that many of the businesses are dependent on tourist dollars, and may operate only during the high season. As the vacation season ends, Denmark & Brownfield’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.
Residents will find that the town is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, Denmark & Brownfield is worth considering.
One downside of living in Denmark & Brownfield, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 32.12 minutes every day commuting to work.
