When someone asks where you live, one of the first questions you might get asked is “Why?”. This is always a good question, and can sometimes contain a lot of different answers. Sometimes these answers can be vague, or unclear. However in York this answer should be obvious. Location, Location, Location.
This is probably something you’ve heard quite a number of times throughout your life. Although from someone living outside of York they might not understand your logic. Let’s try to go through the reasons why York is a great location!
Close proximity to other popular cities / destinations!
York has many advantages, one of which is being in close proximity to numerous locations. We are only 38 minutes from Lancaster, 46 minutes from Gettysburg, 48 minutes from Baltimore, 35 minutes from Harrisburg, and 37 minutes from Mechanicsburg. Those are just a few of the close cities within a short distance.
We are also only 3 hours and 40 minutes from Ocean City, MD , 3 hours and 33 minutes from New York City, and 2 hours from Philadelphia!
Public Transportation via the Lancaster Train Station can also help you get to some of these destinations in a shorter amount of time.
Cost of Living is relatively low!
It’s a fact that the cost of living in York PA is relatively low compared to the potential income one could make.
This probably contributes to being one of the biggest growing Hot Spots in the Northeast!
Professional and Free lance photographers would agree that PA is a beautiful state, especially when it comes to taking photos in the Fall. With Rolling hills, and plenty of nature hot spots, there’s plenty of picture taking going on in this beautiful area.
Outdoor Activities galore!
Do you enjoy Kayaking, Biking, Hiking, Walking, or winter sports?
If you answered yes to any of those questions, then you might want to consider relocating to the York area. With Ski Roundtop just a hop skip and jump away, you can ski all winter long!
We also have many parks in the area for Kayaking, Biking, Walking, and Hiking activities.
