I personally love the area but I notice most people seek to leave. The people are friendly but also live in their own independent ways. I love Donegal High School and surrounding schools but some students struggle in the environment. I like being in the middle of nowhere but still having stuff to do around. This area is much nicer than other places and is even better than surrounding towns. In the future, the neighborhoods might be less decent and more trashy. Overall though the area tends to stay the same.

Very nice restaurants and scenery. The people are very friendly. Would highly recommend dinning at Harvey's BBQ, they have the best pulled pork and pulled chicken sandwiches.
Crime is not that prominent in this area. The majority of problems relate to the usage of heroin but other than that, the town seems to be fairly safe. The police are not always sitting around but they are very reliable.
