When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing
is often the way it looks, like its homes and its setting. Some places look
the same, but they only reveal their true character after living in them for
a while because they contain a unique mix of occupational or cultural groups.
This neighborhood is very unique in some important ways, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive exploration and analysis.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
The Aero Vista neighborhood stands out nationally for having
a greater proportion of its residents active in the military than
99.9% of other U.S. neighborhoods. If you come here, you
will notice military people active in their jobs, going to and from work,
and in plain clothes out and about the neighborhood.
Furthermore, the government often provides some of the more stable jobs in the economy.
From local, to state, to federal government workers, the government can
also be a major employer. What NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed, is
that the Aero Vista neighborhood in particular stands out
when compared nationally for the proportion of its working residents who
are employed by the government. At 41.6% of its workforce, this
neighborhood has a greater concentration of government workers than
99.9% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
One of the really interesting characteristics about the
Aero Vista neighborhood is that, according to NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive research, it is an excellent choice in which to reside for
college students. Due to its popularity among college students who
already choose to live here, its walkability, and its above average
safety from crime, the neighborhood is ideal for prospective or
already-enrolled college students. Between semesters and during
school breaks, you'll notice that the excitement here fluctuates with
the college seasons. Despite the excitement however, parents of college-age
children can rest easy knowing that this
neighborhood has an above average safety rating. For each of these
reasons, the neighborhood is rated among the

found in 99.4% of U.S. neighborhoods. Less time commuting
means more time for other things in life.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Some neighborhoods have more internal cohesiveness than others. While other
neighborhoods feel like a collection of strangers who just happen to live

of the people in a place, but how long people have been together in that
neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research has revealed some interesting
things about the rootedness of people in the Aero Vista
