Upper Nazareth Township is a quiet community on the outside of Nazareth, PA. Nazareth sits just north of Easton and Bethlehem, PA. This community is a mix of blue and white collar people and over the last decade has welcomed a lot of families from New Jersey and metro New York. All-in-all, it is a pleasant place to raise a family, with good schools, lower taxes and good municipal services.

Upper Nazareth Township is a nice area to raise your kids and receive a great education. The residents are willing to lend a hand when you are in trouble and its honestly the type of environment you should be living in. Please note that this is not a nightlife area but rather a family-friendly town.
Although the area where I live doesn't have too much specialty to it, I still find it a great place to live. There are not many interesting tourist attractions, but you don't have to travel far to find them. The people are great and the town of Nazareth has a fine reputation compared to other neighboring towns.
