Growing up here was great! There was always something to do and kids always outside and doing something. My neighbors were great and friendly. Everyone knew each other. Now that I am older, I am realizing this is not the place I would like to live for another 10 years but I think my little sister will have the same experiences here that I did.

Conrad Weiser School District does not prepare its students well for life after high school. The area has some unique qualities such as Blue Marsh, Christmas Village, and its proximity to the Jersey shore, Philadelphia, New York, and D.C. However, the area is very conservative and there are few things to do nearby because it is very rural.
There's a variety of housing options depending on what town you're in. Houses along 422 often are townhouses. Some are better kept than others. Suburban houses tend to be larger and have more land. Housing costs are average. A large house here can cost a few hundred thousand dollars, but renting and buying options of other types are varied.
