Setting & Lifestyle

Another notable thing is that Markleeville is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents.

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.

In addition, Markleeville is home to many people who could be described as "urban sophisticates". Urban sophisticates are people who are both educated and wealthy, and thus tend to be older, richer, and more established than young professionals.

Finally, Markleeville’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the country, making it one of the safest places to raise a family.
