A small town with a top ten ranked public school. Powerhouse in small school athletics. A rural yet opportunistic area due to the surrounding big cities. Overall, a town that is accepting and blue-collared. As family welcoming as you can get! Its anchors include faith, football (Franco), chocolate, "The Mill", and rich Italian food

I've lived in Tyrone my whole life. The best part about Tyrone is the small town people. Everyone in Tyrone cares about the town and the people in it. We all have each others backs. The town also has a very historical feel to it. So many things have happened in Tyrone and you can tell just by visiting. Tyrone is a good town to walk around and enjoy. The local businesses are extremely welcoming and they are very original. Tyrone is definitely a place everyone should visit.
Tyrone, Pa is a small community that sits between the towns of Altoona and the college of Penn State University of State College; Tyrone is a borough that is made up with a population at 7500. Everything is closed together from Sheetz store to phone and Verizon to downtown shopping. I really enjoy the town besides from the fact it is small, but also decent in rent, decent in prices locally and more.
