I live in this town but I'm not from the area. I moved here in 2014 from Southern New Jersey. While the food options around here are not very good at all, there's lots of nature to see and lots of things to do outside.

Favorite places in this area including hiking at Ricketts Glen State Park, skiing at Montage Mountain, concerts at Montage Mount, movies in Dickson City, etc.
