Setting & Lifestyle
It is a fairly quiet town because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Winnie has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Winnie has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Winnie than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Winnie may be for you.
Winnie 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.
As is often the case in a small town, Winnie doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
