Hague is a somewhat small town located in the state of Virginia. With a population of 5,243 people and just one neighborhood, Hague is the 123rd largest community in Virginia.

Overall, Hague is a town of sales and office workers, professionals and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Hague who work in office and administrative support (19.65%), maintenance occupations (9.30%) and community and social services (8.30%).
Also of interest is that Hague has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Hague is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the town’s population swells significantly during the vacation season, and drops again when the season ends. Because of this, much of the local economy is centered around tourism; some businesses may be operated only during the high season. During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially quieter place to live.
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, Hague is worth considering.
One downside of living in Hague, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 31.38 minutes every day commuting to work.
As is often the case in a small town, Hague doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
