Fulton is a very small coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Texas. With a population of 1,498 people and just one neighborhood, Fulton is the 737th largest community in Texas.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Fulton is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Fulton is a town of service providers, sales and office workers and construction workers and builders. There are especially a lot of people living in Fulton who work in food service (15.98%), office and administrative support (14.72%) and maintenance occupations (11.85%).
Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Fulton 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.
The town is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. For example, Fulton has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Fulton a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
Fulton is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Quite often, nautical areas such as these attract visitors and locals who come to enjoy the scenery and various waterfront activities.
One of the benefits of Fulton is that there is very little traffic. The average commute to work is 18.23 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.
As is often the case in a small town, Fulton doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
