Lummi Island Profile


Overview

Lummi Island is a tiny coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Washington. With a population of 1,000 people and just one neighborhood, Lummi Island is the 234th largest community in Washington.

Lummi Island home prices are not only among the most expensive in Washington, but Lummi Island real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.

Occupations and Workforce

Lummi Island is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 86.96% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Lummi Island is a town of professionals, service providers, and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Lummi Island who work in food service (12.85%), sales jobs (11.46%), and management occupations (11.07%).

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

And if you like science, one thing you'll find is that Lummi Island has lots of scientists living in town - whether they be life scientists, physical scientists (like astronomers), or social scientists (like geographers!). So, if you're scientific-minded, you might like it here too.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 24.54% of the workforce. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce this is high compared to the rest of the county. 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 Lummi Island is a major vacation destination. Much of the town’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season. The effect on the local economy is that many of the businesses are dependent on tourist dollars, and may operate only during the high season. As the vacation season ends, Lummi Island’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.

It is a fairly quiet town because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Lummi Island has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Lummi Island has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Lummi Island than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Lummi Island may be for you.

Lummi Island 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.
