Escaping Pennsylvania ASAP - 10/10/2021
I've lived in PA for 26 years and I've been ready to leave for some time.
PA made the top 10 for property tax, is ranked number 13 for hazardous pollution, not even in the top 50% for median wage. They currently have the 3rd highest fuel tax, though they were number one for some time. Lowest floor income (minimum wage) in the Read More

jobs - 1/4/2016
We need jobs now bring back gas, oil and coal. I moved back to Pennsylvania in 2008 so my wife could be close to her family and I found a job at halliburton rather quickly they got my cdl for me I lost that job in 2012 it took a year but I was given a job at universal well service that lasted till 2015 at both jobs my average income was enough to keep my wife at home to be a mother (her choice).
Now i am looking for work and I don't want to work at creps for 9$ a hour. Read More

Williamsport - 8/16/2015
I wouldn't recommend anyone relocating to consider to move to Williamsport. This little town trying to be a city is definitely not a good environment, specially for family with kids. There are a lot of drugs on the streets, heroin specially, and drive by shootings specially at the downtown parks. Since the gas companies the cost of living went up so much that is almost impossible to rent, specially compared to the income and jobs that the town has to offer. All the city cares is College kids that leave their money at Pennsylvania College of Technology, little league in the summer, and the local hospital (Susquehanna health system). The security provided by the police is slow and deficient, and so does the judicial system. It's sad to say that the town has dramatically changed for the worst in the last decade. Read More

johnstown, pa. - 10/20/2014
I have lived in this area for 40 years. I am tired of the snowstorms, rain, and sunless days. The cost of living is low, but the lack of nice weather really affects the quality of life. Read More

Best City/area/place to live?! Torn between a few. - 12/11/2012
I am looking into moving to PA, soon, as my Husband is getting ready to get out of the military. We are from NY, but don't want to go back to the town we are from. We are really leaning towards PA. & I'm torn between a few places!
My Husband is going to be working in the IT field, so a big business or colleges may be a good place for a job for him. I will be doing something in the animal field, Vet Assisting/Tech.

We aren't sure where are actual GOOD places to live & raise a family.

Here are some we are considering! I want to hear opinions, the good the bad, anything!

Poconos area. I am almost very set on the Poconos. I am just not certain where he would get a networking job near there...

Reading, PA. I have heard such mixed things about this place, but we wouldn't want to live IN Reading anyways. We are thinking more along the outskirts. There are PLENTY of jobs near there.
Wyomissing/Sinking Spring. There are a bunch Read More
