Setting & Lifestyle
Plymouth is a place where college students are a big part of the character and culture of the town. Small towns have often struggled with declining populations over the past few decades, but the presence of such a large college student population has helped Plymouth to fight this trend. Not only does the college population add spending and jobs to local economy, but it also contributes a very tangible, youthful energy to the town.
For a small town, there is also a high proportion of single, often educated, people living in Plymouth. This is not typical for smaller communities in America, and adds a feeling of vibrancy to Plymouth.
One of the benefits of Plymouth is that there is very little traffic. The average commute to work is 17.01 minutes, which is substantially less than the national average. Not only does this mean that the drive to work is less aggravating, but noise and pollution levels are lower as a result.
Being a small town, Plymouth does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
