Schuylkill County Reviews

Beautiful area visually, but barren. Very few to no places for young people to gather or hang out in most areas. Very few to no work opportunities, especially for full time jobs. Low crime rate in many areas, and most small towns do not require their own police force.

I enjoy the small town feel of Schuylkill County. People are friendly and non-judgmental. There are many community activities year round. Schools have good reviews in Schuylkill Haven. Area is clean and well kept. Neighbors are helpful.
I grew up here and after a lot of traveling have come home to start a family. I love this area as a great family community. We love the outdoors and always have found something to do and somewhere to go bc of the ease of access to many places, like Philadelphia.
