Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Luther is a major vacation destination. Much of the village’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, Luther’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 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!) Luther 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. Luther has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Luther than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Luther may be for you.
Being a small village, Luther does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
