In big or medium-sized cities, urban sophisticates tend to frequent art institutions such as opera, symphonies, ballet, live theatre, and museums.

Washington Boro has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy.
