There are especially a lot of people living in Newport who work in office and administrative support (12.93%), sales jobs (11.03%) and management occupations (8.17%).
Setting & Lifestyle
The town is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. For example, Newport has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Newport a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
One of the nice things about Newport 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.
As is often the case in a small town, Newport doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
