Lemont is a wonderful place to live and raise a family. It has a small town atmosphere while being close to the larger State College community.

Small place. There is nothing in Lemont itself. You have to go into State College,which is a college town. The most diverse restaurants are downtown and overtaken by the students. Not family friendly. You need to drive a ways for family friendly. Not much for children. Increase in crime in state college area usually involving students. Also drug problems always in the news in surrounding areas.
