When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing
is often the way it looks, like its homes and its setting. Some places look
the same, but they only reveal their true character after living in them for
a while because they contain a unique mix of occupational or cultural groups.
This neighborhood is very unique in some important ways, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive exploration and analysis.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The Tahuya / Dewatto neighborhood is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Often such coastal places have amenities and recreational activities on the waterfront
that are attractive to residents and visitors alike.
In addition to being coastal, Tahuya / Dewatto is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.
One of the notable things about Tahuya / Dewatto is that it is one of the quietest neighborhoods in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis and quantitative rating of quietness. When you are here, you will find it to be very quiet. If quiet and peaceful are your cup of tea, you may have found a great place for you.
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Tahuya / Dewatto neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 38.4%, which is higher than 96.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Tahuya / Dewatto neighborhood, 0.7% of people ride
a ferry to work each day. This is a very high percentage compared to most places.
In fact, NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that this is a higher level of ferry
ridership than in 99.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Tahuya / Dewatto neighborhood has more
Czechoslovakian and Swedish ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 0.9% of
this neighborhood's residents have Czechoslovakian ancestry and 6.3% have Swedish ancestry.
Tahuya / Dewatto is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.3% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Hebrew at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 95.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
With more than 2.1% of residents living with a same sex partner,
Tahuya / Dewatto is truly a neighborhood that stands out from the rest in
this regard. In fact, exclusive analysis by NeighborhoodScout reveals that
this neighborhood has a greater concentration of same sex couples than
95.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.
