I live in Northeast Pennsylvania. I agree with almost all of these except Dickson City. If you've been there it's a place filled with beautiful restaurants tons of things to do malls great restaurants in a lot of other really nice things. I don't live in Dickson City but I do know it's a very clean City and I have no idea how in the h**l it made the top 10. Clarks Summit Pennsylvania should be the number one nicest place to live. With a very good employment rate, one of the top rated high schools in the country, and phenomenal Athletics including many state champions over several Sports over the past few years. And we're a public school. Which means we don't go out and recruit children like colleges do when they become men. Clarks Summit Pennsylvania, the number one best place to live in Northeast Pennsylvania or maybe all of Pennsylvania.
