Avoca is small town located between two major cities in Northeast Pennsylvania, Scranton and Wilkes Barre. The town mainly consists of Irish, Polish, and Italian heritage. There are many small local bars and churches located in the mile and a half long town. Avoca is also the home of the Wilkes Barre/Scranton international airport.
There are many great gyms and workout facilities, however, many people are overweight. There are too many fast food options around.
The community is friendly and everyone is kind to eachother, but we don't have a lot of community events where we all get together. Our area is very pet friendly.
