Garden City is a tiny town located in the state of Utah. With a population of 575 people and just one neighborhood, Garden City is the 141st largest community in Utah.
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 service providers, sales and office workers and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Garden City who work in maintenance occupations (31.65%), management occupations (15.82%) and sales jobs (12.66%).
Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Garden City is an extremely popular vacation destination. A significant portion of the population is seasonal. During the vacation season, the town experiences a large influx of people who take up residence in second homes they own in the area. As the vacation season ends, the population drops again, leaving behind a substantially quieter and smaller town.
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, Garden City is worth considering.
One of the benefits of Garden City is that there is very little traffic. The average commute to work is 13.20 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.
