Very nice rural area where you can know all the residents and make friends easily. Low crime and no traffic but only 30 minutes from Lancaster or Harrisburg.

It is usually quiet. There is grocery store , restaurant and shopping areas in short driving distance.
If you are looking for a place with four distinct seasons, then Pennsylvania in general is great. The summers are a little humid though, but the winters typically aren't horrible. I personally do not like the cold at all, so I need a heavy winter jacket for November through March.
