Crestline is a somewhat small town located in the state of California. With a population of 11,123 people and two constituent neighborhoods, Crestline is the 404th largest community in California.
Unlike some towns, Crestline isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Crestline are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Crestline is a town of professionals, sales and office workers, and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Crestline who work in sales jobs (14.25%), office and administrative support (9.17%), and food service (7.09%).

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 10.68% 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.
Another notable thing is that Crestline is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the town’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.
One downside of living in Crestline, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 38.13 minutes every day commuting to work.
