Setting & Lifestyle

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

Lowgap is very much a car-oriented town. This is because the population of Lowgap isn't large enough or dense enough to support an extensive public transit system. It has a lot of rural roads, and the distance between houses can be quite large, which together tends to discourage walking and bicycling to work. 1.00% of residents commute to work in their own car (and the drive is typically to a job out of town). People also tend to drive out of town for other services as well, such as shopping, doctors appointments, and more.

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