Upper Saucon Township is a suburban community like any other, with many parks and great public schools as well. The only negative would be that shopping is mostly out of Quakertown or Allentown, as are fast food restaurants.

This area provides a safe suburban or rural atmosphere in Pennsylvania's third largest metropolitan area. A short drive from Allentown, Pennsylvania's third largest city as well as two other small cities. Homes tend to be high value and the school district is very well. Due to many residents having higher incomes, some may feel judged. If I had to do it all over again, I may not have picked this area, but definitely would not be mad if I ended up here. I cannot see myself staying in the same town as I may want to explore other areas, but may come back when I'm older.
There are a variety of job opportunities in the area, ranging from office jobs, retail to manufacturing. There are several large hospitals in the area that employ a large number of medical professionals. Nearby Allentown, Bethlehem, and Quakertown have a number of larger companies that employ people from a variety of fields. There are also many high quality school districts for those working in education. I feel that there are a lot of opportunities for jobs, but in the current hiring climate, many of the businesses are not taking risks or hiring more staff, making it a bit tough to find a new job, even when qualified. Also, the pay rates for similar jobs would be higher in a larger metropolitan area, but the cost of living here is cheaper, so it evens out.
