Oxford is a small town right on the PA/MD border. At first glance it's single main road seems filled with empty storefronts and passerby's. Who would want to stay here? There isn't a hotel within miles and our only retail chain store is Walmart. But Oxford has a sense of community, everyone rally's around our sports teams and school events. Oxford is made of an older demographic, but they have grown up here and choose to stay for the small town feel.

Oxford is a very nice little town, very family friendly. It is very clean and nice, there are not much jobs in oxford, we ofren fond ourselves traveling a grwat amount of distance yo get to work. Overall ot os a great place go live, the schools are good, there a local hospital near by the houses are nice, there is not many things to do at night but there are a few local bbars and restaurants that make a good.night life theme.
Pretty much nothing to do within 30 minutes, but Philly, Wilmington, and Baltimore aren't too far. Most people in the town are nice and the local Amish make really awesome food, there is always a fresh supply of fruits and vegetables. Just like any small town we have way too many pizza places and banks, but somehow they all stay open.
