Overall, Boys Town is a village of professionals, service providers and managers.

A relatively large number of people in Boys Town telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 8.65% of the workforce works from home. While this may seem like a small number, as a fraction of the total workforce it ranks among the highest in the country. These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.
Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Boys Town is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the village’s population swells significantly during the vacation season, and drops again when the season ends. Because of this, much of the local economy is centered around tourism; some businesses may be operated only during the high season. During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially quieter place to live.
One downside of living in Boys Town is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Boys Town, the average commute to work is 44.76 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average. On the other hand, local public transit is widely used in the village, so leaving the car at home and taking transit is often a viable alternative.
Despite the fact that it is a small village, Boys Town has quite a few people who take public transportation – mostly the bus - for their daily commute to work. This helps to fill a real need in the village for affordable transportation.
