A friendly small town. The pizza shop is wonderful! They had a small bakery which just closed - it was GREAT! The recently opened by-pass has taken a lot of traffic away from the town but locals still love it!

Is very quiet- great schools.
Love the healthy living. Close to Penn State. A lot to do ! Like minded people- low crime.
Very small rural town in central PA. The schools are average. There are very few job opportunities in the town itself but it is located only 15 minutes from State College and Penn State University which opens the job market considerably. It is a good place if you prefer to be in a more rural setting and easily commute to a larger town.
