A safe and lovely place to live. There is a downtown area that is clean and has various eat shops, and a cheap retro movie theater great for hanging out with friends. The various neighborhoods are all safe and hold numerous events. The Green Dragon market can also be found in Ephrata, a great place for cheap yet filling eats and anything else you may need. You can find numerous parks to job to, bike to, and spend time with friends and family at.

The area is not bad. There are plenty of friendly neighbors, and lots of friends. However, the area is getting busier, especially downtown, due to the opening of new stores and businesses. I would only live here again if I cannot find a better and more beautiful place to live in. I have seen more beautiful places in the country. I really hope that this town does not become too busy, because at the moment, it seems like it is headed in that direction.
My overall experience have been good. Lots of friendly people, cheap grocery stores, malls, school campuses and churches are 20 to 30 minutes away or less.
