I have lived in Moore Township all my life. The elementary school is the best one in Northampton County; all of the teachers are willing to help a student if he or she is having difficulties in class. There really isn't anything to do nightlife wise; kind of far away from populated areas so nightlife up here includes reading a book or watching a TiVoed show. Blue Mountain is only a 15 minute drive, so that is something to do during the winter months. The Township is definitely family friendly as well as healthy; there are two recreational centers within the township. Commute time in any direction is 30 to 45 minutes to Bethlehem or Allentown. I am aware of only a few job opportunities, but they are extremely rare, which is why the commute time is what it is. If I could make any suggestion, I think I would consider revamping the nightlife. I know a lot of young adults that would love to just have a bar with a party like atmosphere. There really aren't any of those around here.

Bath is a small town in Pennsylvania that has a wide variety of both suburban and rural areas. The town of Bath has local businesses that are the heart of the town, and surrounding the town is beautiful farmlands and scenery. The one change I would like to see affect Bath would be the cleanliness and modernness of the town increase. Some buildings are out-dated and not as well-kept, and I feel like the improvement of these buildings would have a great impact on the town.
Bath has a more concentrated town as well as a lot of farms and fields towards the outskirts of it. There is a place for everyone. The only draw back would be the potholes, although some roads have recently been fixed.
