Setting & Lifestyle

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.
The town is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. For example, Rocky Mount has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Rocky Mount a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
Rocky Mount 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.
