Life in the Region

If you are thinking of relocating to Elizabethtown, you will not be disappointed.  Elizabethtown is centrally located to Harrisburg, Lancaster, and York (three larger cities in Central Pennsylvania).  We are only a few hours from Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, DC, and New York City. 

The ocean is not far away; the mountains are even closer.  There are the sweet smells of chocolate thanks to Mars Chocolate in Elizabethtown and Hershey Foods in nearby Hershey.  There are the rural smells of local farmers.  There is the cold weather of the winter, the beautiful sunshine and flowers of the spring, the heat of the summer, and the inspiring fall days.  What can we say….we think we have it all here in Central Pennsylvania!
