Thanks all - I think I'll plan on visiting Lancaster as it sounds like a great city but I believe we'll plan to shift our focus on living back to either West Chester or central Bucks as we originally planned . I appreciate the candor!

I would recommend Lititz area.
Landisville, mount joy, etown or manheim. Great locations with little crime.

I'm talking about middle aged parents that are completely willing to break ties with their adult children over things like the child's support of tolerance and diversity, as expressed by their children's church provided "we welcome all in our home" yard signs, during the whole Trump Muslim ban debacle. About 60-70% of the "English" or non plain sect residents here, are extremely conservative, and very quiet and discrete about it. Most on my block are regular church attendees, subtly racist, and would rather die that vote for a dem. I literally have older neighbors who view Trump as some sort of blessing from God, and will not even allow a negative thought of their Presidential Messiah to enter their heads. That BTW, is NOT a political statement, it's a fact.

That said, as a liberal, one of the 30% or so of the left leaning folks in this county, I LOVE living here. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
Yes, Lancaster County definitely has a great deal of conservatives. But the city is turning more progressive by the minute, and I think you will slowly start find inner suburbs to reflect the same.

Dauphin County, once a staunch Republican core, has been voting blue since 2008.

Cumberland County, a hardcore Republican county of the 717, voted for Tom Wolf in the gubernatorial.
