Setting & Lifestyle

Diamondhead is a good choice for families with children because of several factors. Many other families with children live here, making it a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families. The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic success. Many people own their own single-family homes, providing areas for children to play and stability in the community. Finally, Diamondhead’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.

One of the nice things about Diamondhead is that it is nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Because of this, visitors and locals will often go to these areas to take in the scenery or to enjoy waterfront activities.

One downside of living in Diamondhead, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 31.90 minutes every day commuting to work.

Being a small town, Diamondhead does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
