Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Arkdale is an extremely popular vacation destination. A significant portion of the population is seasonal. During the vacation season, the town experiences a large influx of people who take up residence in second homes they own in the area. As the vacation season ends, the population drops again, leaving behind a substantially quieter and smaller town.
Arkdale’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the nation, making it a very safe 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, Arkdale has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Arkdale a pretty quiet place to live overall.
