Setting & Lifestyle
Because of many things, Monterey is a great place for families with children to consider. First of all, many other families with children live here, making Monterey a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families, as well as find family-oriented services and community. The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic values. With regard to real estate, Monterey has a high rate of owner-occupied single family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community. Finally, Monterey’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the country, making it one of the safest places to raise a family.
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.

If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
Monterey 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.
