Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Medina 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.
Residents will find that the town is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, Medina is worth considering.
One downside of living in Medina is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Medina, the average commute to work is 30.59 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average.
