Occupations and Workforce

Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, North Creek is a town of service providers, sales and office workers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in North Creek who work in personal care services (16.94%), food service (15.32%) and healthcare (8.87%).
Of important note, North Creek is also a town of artists. North Creek has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape North Creek’s character.
Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that North Creek is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the town’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.
Residents will find that the town is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, North Creek is worth considering.
One of the benefits of North Creek is that there is very little traffic. The average commute to work is 18.27 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.
North Creek is a small town, and as is often the case with smaller towns, the population isn't large or dense enough to support much in the way of a public transportation system. In fact, there are many rural roads around North Creek, which makes walking or biking to and from work a bit difficult. This makes for a very car-oriented town: 100.00% of residents commute to work by private automobile, and people often drive out of town for work, shopping, and other activities.
As is often the case in a small town, North Creek doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
