Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Williamsburg is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the town’s population swells significantly during the vacation season, and drops again when the season ends. Because of this, much of the local economy is centered around tourism; some businesses may be operated only during the high season. During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially 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!) Williamsburg 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. Williamsburg has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Williamsburg than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Williamsburg may be for you.
