Bow Profile


Overview

Bow is a somewhat small coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Washington. With a population of 6,355 people and just one neighborhood, Bow is the 119th largest community in Washington.

Housing costs in Bow are among some of the highest in the nation, although real estate prices here don't compare to real estate prices in the most expensive communities in Washington.

Occupations and Workforce

Bow is neither predominantly blue-collar nor white-collar, instead having a mixed workforce of both blue-collar and white-collar jobs. Overall, Bow is a town of managers, professionals, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Bow who work in management occupations (14.26%), office and administrative support (9.24%), and business and financial occupations (7.35%).

Of important note, Bow is also a town of artists. Bow has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Bow’s character.

Setting & Lifestyle

Because of many things, Bow is a very good place for families to consider. With an enviable combination of good schools, low crime, college-educated neighbors who tend to support education because of their own experiences, and a high rate of home ownership in predominantly single-family properties, Bow really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Bow perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly place to live.

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

Bow is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Such areas are often places that visitors and locals go for waterfront activities or taking in the scenery.

Bow Demographics

In terms of college education, Bow is substantially better educated than the typical community in the nation, which has 21.84% of the adults holding a bachelor's degree or graduate degree: 30.62% of adults in Bow have a college degree.

The per capita income in Bow in 2010 was $35,972, which is wealthy relative to Washington and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $143,888 for a family of four. However, Bow contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
