Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Saint George 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, Saint George’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.
It is a fairly quiet town 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!) Saint George 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. Saint George has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Saint George than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Saint George may be for you.
Saint George 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.
As is often the case in a small town, Saint George doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
