Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Sister Bay is a major vacation destination. Much of the village’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, Sister Bay’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.
Residents will find that the village is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, Sister Bay is worth considering.
Residents of the village have the good fortune of having one of the shortest daily commutes compared to the rest of the country. On average, they spend only 12.55 minutes getting to work every day.
Sister Bay is a small village, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
