It's a peaceful and lovely town with a gorgeous view of the woods, but if you are looking for opportunities, you can forget about settling in this place. The minimum wages are extremely low in some fields which involve retail, hospitality, local/State County government, etc.. In some parts of the town, you can see more people becoming homeless because of the awful housing market.

They have opened up several stores and establishments due to the growth of population. I recommend that you explore the Mount Airy Casino, Tannersville Outlets, Camelback, Kalahari, and Great Wolf.
