What locals are saying

"Missing you, my brother. […] I remember when we sat on the shore. We talked about my great white north. […] I miss you and your Lancaster ways. I sit to contemplate the waves of the ocean. They bring me back to you. You weren't like the others, with their empty eyes and plastic smiles." (The Beautiful Mistake).

A city which plays home to people with varying budgets, Lancaster, PA, is a residential paradise. A short drive away from the capital, as well as New York and Philadelphia, Lancaster spreads across seven square miles and has around 56,000 dwellers who lovingly call it home. This city lies in the Pennsylvania Dutch Country, and is a peaceful and serene area, surrounded by farms and country-style living. Besides the quaint atmosphere -- which makes one feel transported to Europe in the early 1970s -- the views afforded by the Susquehanna River make Lancaster a popular residential choice with young couples and families with small children, looking for the perfect place to raise their kids away from the hustle and bustle of the big city.
