Hummelstown is a small and busy town. The people here are very friendly and there is always plenty to do. The town has many food chains, local places to eat and shop, drugstores, gift stores, parks, and is filled with schools. The environment is as safe as you can be. The local police are always appreciated but hardly needed. I would say that Hummelstown is not very diverse, and is about middle class on average. The community always comes together and participates in events that are held every couples weeks, or months.

I love how friendly everyone in Hummelstown is. All of the people that you talk to are always so friendly and talkative. It is very nice to be bale to go into stores and say hi to people without them being nasty to you. Hummelstown has a lot of different things to do so if you are a person that gets bored easily, then you can just go out and find something to do. In Hummelstown everything is close to each other so there is not a long commute time to anywhere. Something that I think that Hummelstown could change is some of the landscape and the new buildings that are being constructed. I think that a lot of them are being put up to compete with the other ones but in reality it would be better if they were not being constructed.
Hummelstown is a very interactive community. They have several community activities throughout the year, including the arts festival and winter fling. There are a variety of restaurants to choose from right in town. Hershey Park is just 10 minutes from Hummelstown and so is the night life of downtown Hershey.
