Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing is often the way it looks, like its homes and its setting. Some places look the same, but they only reveal their true character after living in them for a while because they contain a unique mix of occupational or cultural groups. This neighborhood is very unique in some important ways, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive exploration and analysis.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Appleton Blvd / Calumet Blvd is a neighborhood that is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet. Many times, such places have amenities that bring locals and visitors to the waterfront for recreational activities or to check out the scenery. In some densely populated areas that are less financially well-off, the neighborhood waterfront can be relatively industrial and less open to recreation. In addition to being coastal, Appleton Blvd / Calumet Blvd is a very nautical neighborhood, meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel, with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights and sounds of.

In addition, homes built from 2000 through today make up a higher proportion of the Appleton Blvd / Calumet Blvd neighborhood's real estate landscape than 96.7% of the neighborhoods in America. When you are driving around this neighborhood, you'll notice right away that it is one of the newest built of any, with the smell of fresh paint, and the look of young landscaping nearly everywhere you look. In fact, 60.1% of the residential real estate here is classified as newer.

Furthermore, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Appleton Blvd / Calumet Blvd neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 36.1%, which is higher than 96.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

Also of note, the real estate in this neighborhood consists of more mobile homes than 95.6% of all neighborhoods in America, with 30.8% of the occupied housing here being classified as mobile homes. So if you are looking for a mobile home, or you like the look and feel of mobile home parks, this neighborhood might have the setting you desire.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

If you like to ride a ferry to work, this neighborhood may be for you. NeighborhoodScout's research revealed that 0.9% of the Appleton Blvd / Calumet Blvd neighborhood's commuters ride a ferry to and from work each day, which is more than we found in 99.4% of America's neighborhoods.

Also, a unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Appleton Blvd / Calumet Blvd neighborhood, analysis shows that 19.8% of the residents work from home, avoiding a commute altogether. This may not seem like a large number, but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in 99.2% of the neighborhoods in the United States. One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who choose to work from home.

Finally, while most Americans do drive to work alone each day, the Appleton Blvd / Calumet Blvd neighborhood stands out by having 93.8% of commuters doing so, which is a higher proportion of people driving alone to work than NeighborhoodScout found in 95.0% of all American neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

There are more people living in the Appleton Blvd / Calumet Blvd neighborhood employed as sales and service workers (60.3%) than almost any neighborhood in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts, sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people living here who work in such occupations.

Notable & Unique: People

The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

How wealthy a neighborhood is, from very wealthy, to middle income, to low income is very formative with regard to the personality and character of a neighborhood. Equally important is the rate of people, particularly children, who live below the federal poverty line. In some wealthy gated communities, the areas immediately surrounding can have high rates of childhood poverty, which indicates other social issues. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals both aspects of income and poverty for this neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Appleton Blvd / Calumet Blvd neighborhood in Port Charlotte are middle-income, making it a moderate income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 54.6% of the neighborhoods in America. In addition, 5.3% of the children seventeen and under living in this neighborhood are living below the federal poverty line, which is a lower rate of childhood poverty than is found in 71.0% of America's neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

The old saying "you are what you eat" is true. But it is also true that you are what you do for a living. The types of occupations your neighbors have shape their character, and together as a group, their collective occupations shape the culture of a place.

In the Appleton Blvd / Calumet Blvd neighborhood, 39.7% of the working population is employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is executive, management, and professional occupations, with 30.3% of the residents employed.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Appleton Blvd / Calumet Blvd neighborhood is English, spoken by 95.7% of households.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents, our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior – comes from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.

In the Appleton Blvd / Calumet Blvd neighborhood in Port Charlotte, FL, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as German (15.5%). There are also a number of people of Irish ancestry (12.0%), and residents who report English roots (10.8%), and some of the residents are also of Italian ancestry (10.7%), along with some Polish ancestry residents (4.3%), among others.

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike. The greatest number of commuters in Appleton Blvd / Calumet Blvd neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (46.6% of working residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans.

Here most residents (93.8%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
