There are a few bars around, some are good, some are bad. There are no clubs to speak of. It's a rural setting, so nightlife is limited. Plenty of restaurants in the area

It's a small town, not a whole lot of diversity, but that is no big deal. Most people are friendly, and seem relatively happy
The largest employer by far in the area is Geisinger Medical center, a large hospital serving much of central Pennsylvania
