In 2007, the town had a taxable real estate base of $503.37 million.
The town charter reflects the reason for incorporation and calls for future development to be consistent with a rural and fishing village lifestyle that preserves the history and natural green spaces of the two communities. Government services are to be kept to a minimum, density kept low and lot sizes kept large.
The community name of Valkaria derives from Valkyrie, a warrior-maiden of Norse mythology.
A MISTRAM missile tracking system was built by the US Air Force here in the early 1960s.
A largely rural town in the south end of the county, the town includes older homes, newer homes on acre-plus lots and the county-owned Habitat Golf Course, a 6,836-yard (6,251 m), par-72 course near the Valkaria Airport.
The town has held the Grant Seafood Festival every year on the last weekend of February since 1966. In 1968, then U.S. Vice-President Hubert Humphrey visited the Seafood Festival while campaigning for his 1968 presidential bid. The proceeds go towards college scholarships for local children, as well as summer break activities for the community's children.
The town also has the historic Bensen House.
