I love Pleasant Gap! Situated minutes away from State College, it provides the perfect blend of small town and downtown atmospheres! I love that I can enjoy the night life of State College and Penn State, and feel safe taking an Uber for a ten minute drive back home. It is a beautiful neighborhood filled with happy people.

I like that Pleasant Gap is a family, pet and child friendly community full of kind hearted people that are truly looking out for the best interest of others. There is a very low crime rate, and very few rude people. Everyone knows everyone and it is a great place to live.
Safe feel. Not a lot to do. About 15 mins from state college. Schools are good. The schools are up to date on technology. Five restaurants in PG. No good jobs, pay for jobs in centre co. are below national average in all profession. Best paying jobs are at Penn State, but you need someone to get you in.
