I am looking for an apartment near Wegman's in Mechanicsburg, Pa. I will be moving in July 2017. There are so many businesses there, and I don't drive. Thus, it would be nice to walk to work. Any ideas. Thank you for your help.

I don't think there is any sidewalk connectivity from the center that Wegmans is in to anyplace. Probably the walkscore is negative. Are you moving sight unseen? If so turn on Google Earth and see how many ramps and un-sidewalked bridges lead to that area.

You can walk to Wegman's. Is it going to be a safe walk? No, not at all. You'll be walking on the side of the Carlisle Pike. No way would I ever do that. That's just asking to get hit. There are no sidewalks.

At the intersection to enter the Wegman's plaza there are at least 3 lanes heading towards Carlisle (2 straight, 1 turning), and another 4 heading the opposite direction towards Camp Hill/Harrisburg (2 turning lanes, and 2 lanes that go straight).

From my observation, there are not many apartments in that area. Townhomes seem more popular in that area. Silver Spring Township is better known for their developments. Seems like they are building a few new ones all the time. You can find apartments in Mechanicsburg (borough) and will be able to walk around a bit there to a few different places.

Shepherd's Crossing was one apt complex I was looking into, but they are filled. That is close to Wegman's. There is senior housing called Silver Spring Courtyard, but it seems pretty far from the hub of things. Thanks for your comments!

Thank you for your help. Right now, I am just looking for a place that has a lot businesses I can walk to for a job...most likely a condo.

You might be better off in Camp Hill or Lemoyne. That area of Mechanicsburg is pretty expensive.
