York County Reviews

I have lived here most of my life. I have attended the Catholic school here through 8th grade and then have attended York high school. York has a small town feel and friendly people. I would recommend this area to anyone! The one thing that I think could have a change is having more things for the youth to do here. There really is not a lot of activities here for the young people.

York is a small town. The scools are good. It is growing fast we have alot of new businesses. Its a safe town to raise a family and grow up. Downsides are not alot to do for fun. Limited options.
Great community to grow up in. Very safe, but also very small. Everyone knows everybody, which can be good and bad. I would consider returning to my hometown someday when I have a family of my own, but it currently does not have enough opportunities for me.
