There aren't many jobs in the area you have a choice of either working at the grocery store or going to wok as a fisherman that's about it, you'd have to leave town to get a job that pays well an is something you would like to do

We had fishing and great charters here for tourist and also airboats attractions but for the people who love here there aren't many things to do
We have great local restaurants in this area but no food chains or franchises because of or secluded location
