I have always wanted to live in Catawissa, since I was a young girl and visited almost every weekend. The town is small, safe and quiet. There is barely ever any notable issues except a fire here and there.

Catawissa is a very nice small town placed along the Susquehanna River. The people that live in the town are very nice and pleasant. There are a few nice small shops here and a very nice small grocery store. It also has a lot of history with many old historic buildings.
Very small, quiet town. Great in you're into that kind of atmosphere. Tough to get used to if you're used to the city environment. Be prepared to make a drive to any decent store, whether it be for clothing or food.
