hello everyone, i might be taking a position in harrisburg and i was hoping to get some information on some surrounding areas with affordable apartments....im coming from west virginia and have driven long commutes to work, so im not to concerned about being super close to harrisburg...a half hour commute would be fine...

obviously, ive looked online for apartments in surrounding towns, but i was hoping that i could get some information on some local and surrounding towns that are safe and family friendly, but also affordable...

im looking to rent a 2BR apartment or house that is pet friendly...any information is greatly appreciated...thanks in advance....hope to call you all my neighbors soon..

Hi!!

I'm sorry that no one has yet responded to your question.
I used to live in the Harrisburg/Hershey area until I was transferred to Allentown for my job.

Hummelstown is adjacent to Hershey and is not a bad drive into Harrisburg metro depending on where you are working.

That is the " east shore "recommendation.

The " west shore " recommendation is Camp Hill.

Clean, decent living with an overabundance of shopping choices located on the Carlisle Pike.

Also easy access to Harrisburg.

I hope this helps a little.

Default Recommendations

We live in Mechanicsburg, easy commute to downtown Harrisburg. Nice small town feel, several apartment choices. Living "in the borough" has its advantages as you can walk downtown to several restaurants, shops, etc. Also lots of choices outside of town.
