Setting & Lifestyle
Escalante is a good choice for families with children because of several factors. Many other families with children live here, making it a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families. The city’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic success. Many people own their own single-family homes, providing areas for children to play and stability in the community. Finally, Escalante’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.
The city 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, Escalante has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Escalante a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
One of the benefits of Escalante is that there is very little traffic. The average commute to work is 13.48 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 city, Escalante doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
