Setting & Lifestyle

It is a fairly quiet village 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!) Melrose 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. Melrose has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Melrose than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Melrose may be for you.

In Melrose, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 30.35 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average.

Melrose 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.
