Some info if you'd like to visit; Lancaster County lies on the outskirts of the East Coast megalopolis. Options for fantastic food is everywhere from home made stands at the end of driveways, restaurants offering ethnic foods of all kinds and markets offering locally grown, fresh products. Various outlets, novelty stores and huge flea markets make it a magnet for holiday shoppers. The area is rich in local history dating back to the 1700s with interesting architecture and many museums. Outdoor activities abound from hiking trails that have waterfalls, boating, fishing and multiple campgrounds scattered about. The topography is beautiful and a mecca for artists.As for living here; Healthcare is better than other parts of the state with multiple hospitals and urgent care centers within the county. Various churches of different denominations can be easily found.There is a high cost of living compared to wages. A safe, 2-bdrm apt runs around $1,200 a month so you'd need to make at least $17 an hour just to cover living expenses and most jobs here don't pay anywhere near that unless you're a professional. Lancaster City is heavily populated with Hispanics and it would be helpful to know Spanish. There is a noticeably growing gay community and rainbow flags are common. Amish are a huge danger on the roadways in snow, fog and all times of the day and night on any type of road, including 4-lane highways. This danger includes buggies, children driving pony carts without adults, those walking, riding skooters, bicycles and horses as well as men driving construction equipment (since they are not allowed to drive vehicles). Another huge danger is escaped livestock on the roads. Finally, congestion is an ever increasing problem with the fast population growth but there are multiple options using public transportation that make it easier (and safer!) to get around other than using your car.
