I have lived in the town of Hazleton for my entire life and I would not change one single thing. It has given me a lifetime of opprtunity, new friendships, wonderful food and atmosphere, and an overall satisfaction. I would not want to live anywhere else- this diverse town has opened my eyes to new and exciting cultures. I am proud of my upbringing!

Our town of Hazleton has gotten a little more populated over the past 30 years, but that doesn't mean I desire it any less! I love the warm, humble, and small town feel of a coal mining town that isn't so small anymore. There are so much nightlife and newer upscale restaurants moving into the city which is helping the job market. Plus, it's has a great commute to NYC, Philly, and Scranton/Wilkes Barre.
I really like living near Hazleton, PA. The easy access is awesome! It is a fun place to start a family. Visit Eagle Rock Resort, which they offer deluxe accommodations, upscale and casual dining, award-winning golf, spa and fitness facilities, snow skiing, snow tubing, ice skating, swimming pools, stocked fishing lakes, equestrian center, tennis courts, hiking trails, conference and meeting facilities, land scales opportunities and much more.
