Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Long Pond 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, Long Pond is worth considering.
Even though Long Pond is a smaller town, it has many people who hop on public transportation – mostly a streetcar for their daily commute to work. Typically, these people are commuting to good jobs in the surrounding cities.
