One of the nice things about Arapahoe 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.
Arapahoe 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.
