I love shickshinny. The town is cute and has a cvs, grocery store, consignment shop, and a subway. I have a huge back yard on creek that i love to sit by and enjoy all that nature has to offer.
I have grown up in Shickshinny my entire life, and I think it's a beautiful place to live. It's a small town in the country of Pennsylvania where a majority of the people are farmers and hunters. I don't think there is anything I would want to change because I view Shickshinny as a nice, quiet town.
