I like the safe neighborhoods and the great Council Rock School District that is within Northampton Township. We have been living here for almost 20 years and are very happy with the availability of different restaurants and the convenience of shopping as well. Our high school kids are very happy since they enjoy playing basketball with their friends and they can do that on outside courts at the high school or the Northampton Rec Center. The Rec center also offer also of enrichment classes and courses for all age groups. Northampton Township is a wonderful community and a wonderful place to live.

Nice, Family Friendly area. Home prices are a little high. School District is good. Road ways are over crowded, commute times are long. There is a nice variety of restaurants. Philadelphia is only about 20 minutes away.
Northampton Township is a quiet town, with a strong sense of community. There are local markets to support the farmers, as well as a shopping center with a variety of stores. Within the township is a very good public school system, that has strong academics as well as sport teams and music and theatre programs.
