Places to live in Lancaster

by hisrae Online Now Mar 21, 2004 at 5:53 AM

My wife recently got a job in Lancaster, PA. I'm wondering where a good place to live would be in Lancaster or the nearby area. We have a 3 year old daughter, and we would like to live away from industry, in a safe, low-crime area that has some places (restaurants, shops) within walking distance. Please advise.

    Well ... two out of three isn't bad ... Lancaster, PA is in the middle of the countryside - farming and discount shopping are the main industries and there is little or no crime - you are in Amish country there - real country! You could try Elizabethtown ... there is a small college there and a train station ... but you better get used to driving ... or riding a horse ... there are not many towns where you can walk to nice shops and restaurants from your home ...

    I used to live in the Pocono Mountains, lancaster is prime amish country and it's beautiful! Anywhere close by will be low-crime and safe...not much industry nearby at all.
