Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Supply is an extremely popular vacation destination. A significant portion of the population is seasonal. 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.
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!) Supply 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. Supply has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Supply than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Supply may be for you.
Supply is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Quite often, nautical areas such as these attract visitors and locals who come to enjoy the scenery and various waterfront activities.
As is often the case in a small town, Supply doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
