The 10 Best Places To Live In Pennsylvania – Job, Retire, & Family

Pennsylvania, a northeastern U.S. state and one of the 13 original colonies, has a diverse terrain, which includes wide stretches of farmland,
national forests, and mountains. Philadelphia, the Keystone State’s largest city, displays its rich history in Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell, an enduring symbol of American freedom.
Pennsylvania is downright beautiful. It is home to some of the country’s richest history, incredible culture and, yes, a picturesque scenery.
The Appalachian Mountains sit here, and the state has more than 120 state parks, with over 100 miles of coastline, and a varied selection of great towns and cities,
each with its own character.
Mountain climbers will love this state, so will surfers, skydivers, and skiers even, depending on where you are in the state.
Little wonder the Keystone State is widely considered one of the best states to retire.
The natural allure aside, this is a notion mostly driven by other key factors for anyone interested in the hard data:
economic vibrancy (this is the sixth-largest state economy), good health care, school districts that are a cut above the other states, affordability, low rate of homelessness and high quality of life.

  1. York? My parents live there in a nice area; but, the city? OH NO! The garbage everywhere, general criminal behavior- and the regular drug related shootings? I didn't know a small town could be so dangerous. Truly frightening.

  2. امریکہ کی نوآبادیاتی نظام میں جرمن لوگ ریاست پنسلوینیا میں آباد ہوئے۔۔۔۔۔۔۔کیا یہ معلومات درست ہیں؟؟؟؟

  3. I don't know where you get your info but Allentown, Reading are not towns you want to live in, it states Reading low crime rate are you dreaming it probably the highest in Pa so this video is way off way far off.

  4. This list is complete BullS@%t. This is an Endorsement for WESTERN Pennsylvania. This is so much crap. No mention of the Main Line at all. No mention of Chester County. WHOEVER made this list should be arrested for outright fraud!!

  5. Downtown Philly is beautiful but like Washington D.C. it has a surrounding moat of $#%%!@/ crime…Most of these smaller cities in PA have a high population of Latins/Hispanics….Not everyone's cup of tea!!

  6. You lost me with your very first one which means you don’t actually know pa.

    Philadelphia is a crime ridden filthy city with a corrupt government. There was and continues to be a mass exodus since the early 2000’s.

  7. This list is unbelievable Allentown Reading York!
    Obviously you haven't researched the demographics or the crime rate in most of these cities.
    I've done security in all those cities no shortage of drugs and crime.
