Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Shell Lake is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the city’s population swells significantly during the vacation season, and drops again when the season ends. Because of this, much of the local economy is centered around tourism; some businesses may be operated only during the high season. During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially quieter place to live.
It is a fairly quiet city 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!) Shell Lake 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. Shell Lake has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Shell Lake than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Shell Lake may be for you.
