Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Mc Donough is a major vacation destination. Much of the town’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season. The effect on the local economy is that many of the businesses are dependent on tourist dollars, and may operate only during the high season. As the vacation season ends, Mc Donough’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.
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, Mc Donough has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Mc Donough a pretty quiet place to live overall.
