I was going to be completely biased and say Tunkhannock, PA but it might be too small for you.

Some realistic suggestions is Clark Summit, State College or Williamsport?

The largest downtowns that arent more than a red light and stop sign are Scranton, Wilkes barre, Allentown, Bethlehem , Stroudsburg, I would look for towns around them and do your research, you dont have to live in the town to be more than 5 to 10 minutes drive to it.

Thats not true, you can walk downtown Clark Summit. There are stores, bars and restaurants.

For something comparable to Burlington, I would direct you to...

New Hope (in S.E. PA)
New Hope, PA

Jim Thorpe (NEPA/Lehigh Valley)
Jim Thorpe, PA's #1 Guide - See for Yourself

Historic Bethlehem (Lehigh Valley)
Historic Bethlehem Partnership

As others have mentioned, Clarks Summit is also a nice location

New Hope is very nice and cool, but I wouldn't say it is in Northeastern PA. And I am pretty sure its smaller than Tunkhannock.

i agree it's not quite NEPA but it's close. it's kinda hip, trendy and gay. i think it's a good place for people that want to go out and live a little bit of a high lifestyle, party and have a good time. close to the cities, country. beach, etc...
