Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Garrison is a major vacation destination. Much of the city’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, Garrison’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.
Garrison’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the nation, making it a very safe place to live.
Residents will find that the city 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, Garrison is worth considering.
Being a small city, Garrison does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
