Altoona is truly a hidden treasure within Central PA. The city is surrounded by the gorgeous Appellation Mountains giving the city a beautiful backdrop. If your a fan of shopping Altoona is the perfect place for you. There are many big retail centers, plaza's, etc. in Altoona that will cover your biggest shopping needs. The Altoona Area School system is truly magnificent (excelling in both academics and sports), in fact the Altoona Area High School just recieved a bronze award from the US News and World Report high school rankings. There is much to do in Altoona such as: watch Altoona's minor league baseball team play at PNG Field. Or you could visit Lakemont Amusement Park and ride the world oldest rollar coaster Leap the Dips, see a play at the historic Mishler Theater, Visit historic Baker Mansion, and so much more! UPMC (one of the nations best hospitals) just recently bought out Altoona's current hospital meaning that Altoona will now be home to exceptional healthcare. Penn State Altoona is also located in Altoona and is one of the most beautiful campuses I have ever seen! Being a city of strong railroad heritage, Altoona is home of the Pennsylvania Railroad Museum, and the world famous Horseshoe Curve. Altoona is a very inexpensive place to live. The average house hold price is around $70,000, and there are so many beautiful neighborhoods. My only complaint would be that since Altoona is the 10th biggest city in PA, it does have a crime rate that is a little (seriously just a little) over the state average, but I have been living here for 15 years and I have yet to experience any crime. Altoona is a very nice place to live.
