I've lived in Bucks County all my life. Its a beautiful county, trees everywhere but careful of deer crossing the road, it is "bucks" county afterall. We've never suffered from bad floods, wildfires, hurricane damage, or tornadoes. I've always felt safe here. There are many friendly people here, its very suburban, great place for a family. low crime rate. However it is a pretty rich area. So it is pretty expensive to live here. Housing is difficult without a well paying job. Its big so you can't walk everywhere. Getting around is difficult without transportation. Overall I'd say Bucks County is a great place.
Great safe neighborhood with lots of family friendly activities. It is a wonderful place to live because there is always something fun going on. The schools are great, the teachers really care about the students and it is evident.
