I absolutely love the atmosphere of where I live. Going to college in a state that's much farther than my home, I have realized how much I appreciate my home state. The people are so wonderful. Not that southern hospitality isn't great, but sometimes it's just too much for me. I'm grateful for the friendliness of my home, and the people that live there. It's the perfect balance of genuine care and trying not to be overbearing. The culture is also so different. I feel like people in the northeast are just used to a more fast-paced lifestyle, as I am, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

I believe that the Lehigh Valley is a fantastic place to raise a family. I am fortunate to have been raised here, there is a strong sense of community as well as a low crime rate. Ten year sago there was not much to be done in the Lehigh Valley activity wise, however in recent years it has begun to change quite a lot. For example the introduction of the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, a minor league hockey team, has reinvigorated the economy of downtown Allentown, and has made it a desired location to go. I see the Lehigh Valley taking off in the next year and becoming a desired location to travel to.
Overall, I would choose to live here again. I would raise my family here, there is a considerably good public school system. The suburbs are reasonably safe. There are a variety of choices when it comes to eateries, grocery stores, and other daily businesses. As a whole, the area is growing. Growing businesses are coming to the area and enhancing the general atmosphere.
