Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Prudenville is an extremely popular vacation destination. A significant portion of the population is seasonal. During the vacation season, the town experiences a large influx of people who take up residence in second homes they own in the area. As the vacation season ends, the population drops again, leaving behind a substantially quieter and smaller town.
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, Prudenville is worth considering.
Compared to the rest of the country, citizens of Prudenville spend much less time in their cars: on average, their commute to work is only 18.73 minutes. This also means that noise and pollution levels in the town are less than they would otherwise be.
Prudenville 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.
