Small Town America

There’s something special about a small town. I absolutely love driving across the county, checking out the small towns and villages and are the heart of America. Pennsylvania, of course, has some great ones. It’s simply nice to get away from the busy and hectic nature of the city sometimes and escape to what’s considered “God’s country.” The country simply brings a sense of peace that’s hard to find anywhere else.

In that spirit, as it turns out, Pennsylvania has one of the best small towns in America, according to a new study. The study, which is from ExtraSpace.com, states, “Looking for the best small towns in America? Whether you’re searching for affordable places to raise a family or a community full of amenities perfect for your retirement, these nine locations across the U.S. are the top small towns to live in, thanks to their affordability, friendly communities, and unique attractions!”

The small towns they picked are truly a snapshot of America and from a variety of states, including California, Illinois, Arkansas, Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Maine, Michigan and, yes, Pennsylvania. Some of these towns have a population of under 5,000, while other go up to almost 100,000, so the study offers different levels of “small.” So, which local small town made the cut? Read on for the full list and find more information here. I will mention that the Pennsylvania pick has a popular of just 4,693, a median home price of $312,600, an unemployment rate of 2.2% and is safer than 82% of U.S. cities, according to the study.
