Zephyr Cove Profile


Overview

Zephyr Cove is a tiny town located in the state of Nevada. With a population of 571 people and just one neighborhood, Zephyr Cove is the 48th largest community in Nevada.

Zephyr Cove home prices are not only among the most expensive in Nevada, but Zephyr Cove real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.

Occupations and Workforce

Zephyr Cove is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 91.14% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Zephyr Cove is a town of managers, professionals, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Zephyr Cove who work in management occupations (26.58%), healthcare (24.68%), and business and financial occupations (12.66%).

A relatively large number of people in Zephyr Cove telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 36.08% of the workforce works from home. While this may seem like a small number, as a fraction of the total workforce it ranks among the highest in the country. 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.

Setting & Lifestyle

Another notable thing is that Zephyr Cove is a major vacation destination. Much of the town’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, Zephyr Cove’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.

The town is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. For example, Zephyr Cove has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Zephyr Cove a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.

One downside of living in Zephyr Cove, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 38.69 minutes every day commuting to work.

Being a small town, Zephyr Cove does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
