Garden City Profile


Overview

Garden City is a tiny town located in the state of Texas. With a population of 352 people and just one neighborhood, Garden City is the 993rd largest community in Texas.

Garden City real estate is some of the most expensive in Texas, although Garden City house values don't compare to the most expensive real estate in the U.S.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Garden City is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Garden City is a town of sales and office workers, managers, and construction workers and builders. There are especially a lot of people living in Garden City who work in sales jobs (30.34%), management occupations (19.31%), and teaching (9.66%).

A relatively large number of people in Garden City telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 18.62% of the workforce works from home. While this may seem like a small number, as a fraction of the total workforce it ranks among the highest in the country. These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.


Setting & Lifestyle

Because of many things, Garden City is a great place for families with children to consider. First of all, many other families with children live here, making Garden City a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families, as well as find family-oriented services and community. The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic values. With regard to real estate, Garden City has a high rate of owner-occupied single family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community. Finally, Garden City’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the country, making it one of the safest places to raise a family.

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, Garden City has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Garden City a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.

Residents of the town have the good fortune of having one of the shortest daily commutes compared to the rest of the country. On average, they spend only 18.81 minutes getting to work every day.

As is often the case in a small town, Garden City doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
