I love Scranton! There are definitely areas in NEPA that are more welcoming than others, but overall the city is a hustling and bustling place to live! There are lots of four/five star restaurants and tons of activities to do. If someone is fond of something in a nearby area, traveling is worth it’s weight in gold. The city is conveniently located and full of many humble, kind hearted people who are proud to call this city their home. There are currently improvements enriching in the city to make it more attractive to everyone.

Growing up in NEPA, me and my husband moved to Scranton when we were expecting our first child. The area is a really upscale portion of the Poconos. Family friendly neighborhoods, with decent size properties. They are even many dilapidated properties ready to be gentrified on all over if interested in building new. I like the access to all the shopping centers on different stretches of highways, with all the beautiful scenery and actual hills of Montage Mountain!
My experience with Moosic has been nothing but positive. It is a very safe, family-friendly neighborhood with reasonably priced housing and a highly recommended school system. The commute time between Moosic and surrounding cities is acceptable for daily travel. One thing that I would change about Moosic is to make even more job opportunities available. It is a great little town, and any chance to spend more time there is welcomed.
