Annville Reviews

4 reviews
All Categories
Annville is a quaint little town. Home to Lebanon Valley College, it offers a few shops and restaurants as well as a good number of churches. While there isn't too much to do in Annville, we're not far from Hershey or Harrisburg.
I have lived in this area my entire life, and I do not really have any quibs with it, but I also do not see it as spectacular. I love that I am within walking distance to stores and restaurants, a public library, and a park. My kids enjoy the area, and the fact that we still have a large backyard while living in the center of town. I like being 10 miles from Hershey, and the fact that there are multiple job opportunities in any field. Annville is a small town, which means it is tight knit and lots of kind people looking for the greater good. I like that my kids get to grow up in this environment, but as an adult, I desire a different type of environment.
I live on the campus of Lebanon Valley College, and this has proven to be great for me. Everything that I need is either provided by LVC or easily available within the local town of Annville.
