Freemansburg Reviews

1 review
The area is on the outskirts of town and the wildlife can be found in your backyard at any given time of the year. The police force is small but rightfully so since the crime rate is barely non-existent. There are paths to walk and bike on, the river to fish on or go boating, public park with an area for picnicking, and the elementary school is great. People are very friendly and watch out for one another. The costs of living is affordable with homes, townhomes, apartments and the like available for all. The area is one where you can raise a family without fear of any of the negative events that happen in large towns.
