Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Fairview 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, Fairview’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.
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, Fairview has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Fairview a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
One of the benefits of Fairview is that there is very little traffic. The average commute to work is 18.50 minutes, which is substantially less than the national average. Not only does this mean that the drive to work is less aggravating, but noise and pollution levels are lower as a result.
Fairview is a small town, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
