Because there are quite a few people attending college in Manila, it is thought of as a college town. To the benefit of the many students in the area, Manila provides a number of services, amenities and opportunities geared towards their needs and activities.
Another notable thing is that Manila is a major vacation destination. Much of the town’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season. The effect on the local economy is that many of the businesses are dependent on tourist dollars, and may operate only during the high season. As the vacation season ends, Manila’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.
The overall crime rate in Manila is one of the lowest in the US. This makes it one of the safer places to live in the country in terms of crime.
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!) Manila 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. Manila has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Manila than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Manila may be for you.
Manila is a small town, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
