Salisbury Township is a great community with an amazing school district. It is geographically separated by Allentown, however both sides offer great communities to be apart of. In Salisbury you will not find any shortage of public parks, great walking trails, and amazing people who populate all of them.

This is a pretty quiet township. The people I’ve met have all been friendly and laid back personalities. When you’re walking in one of the local parks, other walkers tend to greet you and smile at you. The police force does a great job of responding to calls and keeping the area safe.
Salisbury Township is a small township just outside of the larger city of Allentown, PA, also located close to Philadelphia and New York City. It's a very friendly and safe area with an excellent school district. Two negatives of the area are that the city of Allentown is slowly growing out into Salisbury which used to be a very small community. The area is slowly being very highly populated, and is not quite as quiet anymore. With the growing population of the area it would be nice to see small local businesses benefit from the new influx of people.
