Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Hessel 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, Hessel’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!) Hessel 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. Hessel has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Hessel than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Hessel may be for you.
