Tremont Reviews

5 reviews
All Categories
The summers are very mild with periods of fog, cool breezes and some hot spells, the springs are wet and cold, the winter's are fairly mild, but can get quite cold on occasion and the falls are beautiful, with the trees turning different colors and the cooler temperatures. The winter pretty well keeps me indoors and the spring is buggy, with mosquitoes and black flies in the spring and the beginning of summer. During the end of summer we hear of hurricanes, but generally they don't impact us much. The fall is the best time, when you can get out and enjoy nature. It isn't to hot to hike, ride a bike or just sit and watch a sunset. during the winter warm clothes are a must. A winter jacket, hat and gloves are necessary. Also layers are important. The summer is generally decent for wearing shorts, t-shirt, bathing suit and sandals.

It is not generally safe to ride one's bike or walk on the roads in this area due to the narrow roads and limited space or no space on the side of the road to go when a car passes you. Parking can be quite difficult in the summer cue to the influx of tourists, but the rest of the year it is quite adequate. We have a good bus system that runs during the tourist season, but there is nothing in the winter for public transportation. It can also get quite congested on our island during the tourist season.
Most people in this area are fisherman, boat builders, retailers, small businesses, or tourist attractions. These can produce good employment, but most already have the work force they need.
