Macungie is a great small town located in the East Penn School District, one of the top public schools in Pennsylvania. With this being said, it is great for young families with plenty to do for small children. With being in the Lehigh Valley, job opportunities are abundant and have short commute times, since Macungie is located between Allentown, Bethlehem, and near Philadelphia. There is room for improvement in the downtown area and therefore the nightlife as well. Overall, Macungie is the perfect eastern Pennsylvanian small town to raise a family in.

Friendly neighbors and beautiful neighborhoods. Enjoyed my time there in public schools, rarely any problems. Overall a wonderful place to grow up. Safe and even though the town does not have its own police department, state police respond quickly. Everybody rides your tail when you drive, though, which is rather annoying.
Macungie is a very humble suburban town. It is not far outside of one of Pennsylvania's major cities, Allentown. Macungie has a diverse population and an ever growing economy. It is an excellent place to jumpstart a career, it's education system is efficient, which is why living in the suburbs is beneficial: the commute is fantastic.
