Cape Charles Profile


Overview

Cape Charles is a very small coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Virginia. With a population of 1,017 people and just one neighborhood, Cape Charles is the 274th largest community in Virginia. Cape Charles has an unusually large stock of pre-World War II architecture, making it one of the older and more historic towns.

Occupations and Workforce

Cape Charles is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 85.29% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Cape Charles is a town of professionals, sales and office workers, and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Cape Charles who work in sales jobs (15.92%), management occupations (14.11%), and healthcare (11.11%).

A relatively large number of people in Cape Charles telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 13.29% of the workforce works from home. While this may seem like a small number, as a fraction of the total workforce it ranks among the highest in the country. These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.


Setting & Lifestyle

Another notable thing is that Cape Charles 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.

The town 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, Cape Charles has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Cape Charles a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.

One of the nice things about Cape Charles is that it is nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Because of this, visitors and locals will often go to these areas to take in the scenery or to enjoy waterfront activities.
