Northern Cambria Reviews

Northern Cambria is an extremely small town. In my opinion, there isn't a lot to do in town. There are few local hangouts, and the ones that do exist aren't very entertaining. It has the benefits of a couple grocery stores and other small-ish stores, but at any given point, there is nothing to do in town.

Once a thriving, coal mining community, Northern Cambria has been on a downward spiral for many years now. While driving along the main streets, the majority of storefronts are barren; closed down long ago due to lack of interest. While the small town feel is great for raising a family, there is no diversity, opportunity for growth, or experience.
I have grown up in Northern Cambria my whole life. What I love most about it, is the familiarity. It's comforting walking into a store knowing almost everyone and their families.
