Silver Bay Profile


Overview

Silver Bay is a very small city located in the state of Minnesota. With a population of 1,776 people and just one neighborhood, Silver Bay is the 261st largest community in Minnesota.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some cities where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Silver Bay is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Silver Bay is a city of service providers, sales and office workers, and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Silver Bay who work in management occupations (10.96%), office and administrative support (10.00%), and sales jobs (8.36%).

Setting & Lifestyle

Because of many things, Silver Bay is a very good place for families to consider. With an enviable combination of good schools, low crime, college-educated neighbors who tend to support education because of their own experiences, and a high rate of home ownership in predominantly single-family properties, Silver Bay really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Silver Bay perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly place to live.

It is a fairly quiet city 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!) Silver Bay 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. Silver Bay has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Silver Bay than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Silver Bay may be for you.

One of the benefits of Silver Bay is that there is very little traffic. The average commute to work is 17.08 minutes, which is substantially less than the national average. Not only does this mean that the drive to work is less aggravating, but noise and pollution levels are lower as a result.

Being a small city, Silver Bay does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
