The 10 Best Places To Live In Pennsylvania – Job, Retire, & Family

Pennsylvania, a northeastern U.S. state and one of the 13 original colonies, has a diverse terrain, which includes wide stretches of farmland,
national forests, and mountains. Philadelphia, the Keystone State’s largest city, displays its rich history in Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell, an enduring symbol of American freedom.
Pennsylvania is downright beautiful. It is home to some of the country’s richest history, incredible culture and, yes, a picturesque scenery.
The Appalachian Mountains sit here, and the state has more than 120 state parks, with over 100 miles of coastline, and a varied selection of great towns and cities,
each with its own character.
Mountain climbers will love this state, so will surfers, skydivers, and skiers even, depending on where you are in the state.
Little wonder the Keystone State is widely considered one of the best states to retire.
The natural allure aside, this is a notion mostly driven by other key factors for anyone interested in the hard data:
economic vibrancy (this is the sixth-largest state economy), good health care, school districts that are a cut above the other states, affordability, low rate of homelessness and high quality of life.
Here then, are the 10 best places to live in Pennsylvania to help inform your decision better.

10. Philadelphia. (good to retire, find a job, and raise a family)
9. Pittsburgh. (affordable place to retire, job, raise a family)
8. Scranton. (place for jobs)
7. Allentown. (good for retirees)
6. York.
5. Lancaster. (best place to retire)
4. Reading.

  1. I'm a little late to the comment game but, fuck. Do some fucking research before you put a list together bud. Fuck this is bad.

  2. Did he seriously just say Scranton has the lowest crime rate 😭😭😭😭😂
    Is this a joke?

  3. Pa could be good with good people in charge…unfortunately most every aspect of the government is corrupt from the governor to school boards and beyond !

  4. Reading is not a safe place to live. According to my dad

  5. I enjoyed this company's other video – The 10 Best Counties To Live In

    Topping the list are North Korea, Syria, and Somalia.

  6. I love PA but this list is almost as wrong as Covid 19 misinformation put out at election time.

  7. This is by far the worst video I have seen, 7 of these places u don’t want to live in, video is trash lol

  8. Change the brillo in the crack pipe, you're definitely getting all the bad stuff, hence this list.

  9. I was on the fence, especially after Scranton. Then the Reading bombshell🤷‍♂️. May as well give Kensington honorable mention smh

  10. I see dodge challengers, camaros and dodge chargers and I saw only 2 Toyota supras On the road, I wish I see more supras on the road in Pennsylvania:(

  11. i didnt bother watching after you mentioned philly in the list. you're crazy dude. i'm not paying good money to live in a crime filled ghetto.


  13. You must be kidding right? Don't go to these places, don't even visit if you want to be safe. This guy has no idea what the hell he is talking about. I have lived in PA all my life and i am 68 and stay away from all but 2 of these places.

  14. Not that I believe everything I see or hear but this video totally contradicts everything from the last video I just watched and I know for a fact Reading is definitely not a place to move to! I love Pa! My forever home! Plenty of good places to call home!

  15. Philadelphia Seriously? Pittsburgh WTF?
    I think the author is one of the well known Pennsylvania drug abusers.

  16. And what do we learn watching this "10 Best Places" video and Nick Johnsons "10 Worst Places" videos about Pennsylvania, realizing most cities occured in both lists? Each medal has two sides.

  17. Ok I live in pa now not a one will I will ever go but Lancaster an Gettysburg an that's about it but way out in the sticks of Lancaster I almost died when he called it Landcaster can tell he was never there an was waiting for reading to be pronounced reading that one whould have me fall out my chair but dam that's funny

  18. I lived in PA for decades. This is All WRONG. Its a dump.That's why I'm out.I wish I did it sooner.

  19. This list is stupid! One of the nicest places in Northeast Pa is around Lake Wallenpaupack not Scranton! If looking to live in PA stay out of the bigger cities!
