McSherrystown is adjacent to Hanover , PA. It has easy access to shopping and restaurants. The townships are old, and were not planned well. There has been a great deal of growth, and traffic is terrible. There has been an increase in crime due to the rapid growth.

Honestly this town is perfect it is close to New Oxford, Hanover and Gettysburg also there is very little crime and all my neighbors are great. There are plenty of things to do since it is in the middle of everything.
There's no public transportation, but everyone seems to have their own car.
