Bushkill Township is a decent place, nice house, great amenities, and even public safety. It is about 20 minutes from the nearest super market, and and 45 minutes away from the nearest mall complex. so if you are looking for a place that has everything within walking distance, its best to look elsewhere. but if you like commuting and living in a gated community this is the place for you.
Rarely will you hear in the news about a crime in Nazareth, because that is not something our town is really known for. Going out at night is never an issue or concern, and whenever I walk through Nazareth, day or night, I always feel safe and secure. Whenever I see a stranger in another town, I get a little defensive, but in Nazareth chances are I will say a friendly hello to them.
