Beaver Falls is now a small town when it once was a city. Geneva College is the place that bustles with activity while the rest of the area has fallen into decay. Despite this, the town has multiple churches (including many on College Hill), residence areas at cheap prices, fast food restaurants, stores such as a barber shop and laundromat, and three schools. Beaver Falls has friendly residents and is very walkable, and is half an hour outside Pittsburgh.

I love the area. Although it is smaller than other places, there is so much to do! Fantastic restaurants, many activities, and plenty of parks and places to explore! Also, convenient distance from the city if needed.
As a Beaver Falls resident –since birth–, this town has provided a comfortable living experience for a child/ young adult. The state of local businesses has deteriorated in recent years, with specialized storefronts closing down and low-budget dollar stores being established in their place. The school district provides an average-level Pennsylvania education for its students, although notable academic shortcomings have become apparent with students who transfer to other state schools. The school district's athletic program is the pivotal source of the school's pride, with athletic expenses being prioritized over academic spending.
