Beaver is a semi small town with a n active main street. There are parks on every other block, close schools, churches, libraries , and shopping. I like the close community and family atmosphere. I think they may need to add more activities for teenagers to get them active in the community.

I love Beaver! The people are kind and accepting. It’s like living in one big family. Super Dog friendly. Lots of places to take family walks and plenty of opportunities to entertain children!
The area is VERY nice. There is a lot of wealth in the area and the high school is one of the top in the state of PA. However, if you lean liberal politically you are few and far between. Also, as a young person there is not much to do. AND as a vegan there is even less to do, very little options for food as a person with a restricted diet. I tend to drive downtown weekly, it's about a 40 minute drive.
