Very clean, quaint, charming neighborhood of State College, PA. Voted #3 in best places to live in the United States. Great public schools, very close to Penn State University. Cata bus allows for easy commute to downtown State College.
College town. No good paying jobs. You have to know someone to get into the university, which is the only good job in town. I grew up in state college it was a great place until they took out all industrial work. Lived in other areas as an adult, there are better places.
There are plenty of large-ish stores. For general retail shopping, there are two Walmarts, a Target, and a number of smaller stores. Grocery stores are plentiful too--multiple Weis Markets and Giants. And there is also a Wegmans, which is in my opinion the best grocery store in town; good prices, wide selection, and the cafe is a popular meeting place. Options downtown include mainly McLanahan's and a couple international food markets, but there is a Walmart located just a short bus ride away. If you are located within State College, there's no problem getting anything you need at a store.
