Groton Profile


Overview

Groton is a very small city located in the state of South Dakota. With a population of 1,508 people and just one neighborhood, Groton is the 46th largest community in South Dakota.

Groton real estate is some of the most expensive in South Dakota, although Groton house values don't compare to the most expensive real estate in the U.S.

Groton is neither predominantly blue-collar nor white-collar, instead having a mixed workforce of both blue-collar and white-collar jobs.

There are especially a lot of people living in Groton who work in office and administrative support (13.30%), management occupations (13.20%), and sales jobs (11.40%).

Setting & Lifestyle

In addition, Groton is home to many people who could be described as "urban sophisticates", which are people who are not only wealthy and employed in professional occupations, but highly educated to boot. Urban sophisticates have urbane tastes - whether they reside in a big or small city, a suburb, or a little town. Urban sophisticates support bookstores, quality clothing stores, enjoy luxury travel, and in big cities, they are truly the patrons of the arts, attending and supporting institutions such as opera, symphony, ballet, and theatre.

Because of many things, Groton is a very good place for families to consider. With an enviable combination of good schools, low crime, college-educated neighbors who tend to support education because of their own experiences, and a high rate of home ownership in predominantly single-family properties, Groton really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Groton perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly place to live.
