I love Johnstown, I have lived here for 4 years now and wouldn't change a thing. They make me feel welcome and happy. Things are just a slower pace and that is great for raising a family.

If I could do it all over, I'd definitely live here again. The school systems need a little re-vamping but the community is very close and supportive, and it is overall a very safe place to raise a family.
The safety of Johnstown is one of its best qualities. It has a slight drug problem but other than that the violence is very minimal.
