Cute town, surprisingly awesome music scene! There is some tension between students at the local University and people who live in Lewisburg, but overall the town is cute and friendly, with some really great food. Try Mercado Burrito!

Beautiful town. Has a main "Market" street that is lined with different sorts of family and chain businesses alike. Even a family movie theater. It is a great town to live in, with a beautiful college campus right in the heart of it. Nationally acclaimed public school district for children.
I don't think Lewisburg could have been a better hometown to live and grow up in. I have lived here for the past 17 years, and loved every minute of it. When I think of the town Lewisburg, I think of downtown Lewisburg. Especially in the winter, it's so neat being able to drive through town seeing the lights on the trees that surround the road and the snow reflecting the lights. One thing that is unique to Lewisburg is the classic Lewisburg lamps, they are found almost everywhere downtown. Even though Lewisburg is a small town, there are annual events such as, the Art's Festive, the Ice Festival, and the Wooly Worm Festival, these types of events bring in many people outside of Lewisburg. Due to being such a small town there isn't much nightlife, unless you are a Bucknell college students. Lewisburg has added a lot of amenities over the past few years. Lewisburg will keep growing as a town and community.
