me and my fiance relocated to pa from wisconsin 2 months ago. Yes we decided I've made other posts before about moving to various places and got some responses. But being that i am a NJ native i wanted to come to Pa.



Pros: Landed a very good paying jobs within 1 weeks of relocating here.
Landed a amazing apartment in the colonial park area of harrisburg.
My neighbors are amazing

I love the fact that colonial park is diverse



Con: Where the hell is the friendly people. (outside of the neighbors) People seem to be not friendly at all.


Thinking of actually setting our roots here but don't look like friends would be a option at all.

When we moved here, it was recommended that we join the volunteer Fire Dept and be active in the community. We did.

Folks are very friendly now that they have gotten to know us. Recommend you join a volunteer community organization. In PA they don't necessarily come to you...you need to go to them. Plus we bring cookies and canned goods to our close neighbors at holiday time to say "hi, we are your new neighbors". Altho we have had so many young couples move here past couple of years - it is more like "Welcome to the neighborhood."

Lived in southern Wisc when I was younger...parts of PA are very reminiscent of the Mid West to me. We have been here three years and starting to make friends, just takes awhile for people to warm up.

If you want an area where people are friendly to strangers, move to Texas.

What type of job did you find? Man, your grammar is horrible. Me and my fiance? Where is the friendly people? Geez

I'm also a NJ native. You need to get involved and into social groups and meet people. People are VERY friendly in PA, but you need to get active.

I find the people in PA to be in general, much more friendly then in New Jersey. NJ is more fast paced where as in PA it's more slowed down and relaxed.

I would say it is challenging to meet anyone new given COVID, as there are so many social barriers with events largely being shut down.

I would get involved in a community organization. There are quite a few arts/education/professional organization within Harrisburg city, which is easy to connect with.

I also recommend reading https://theburgnews.com. It is a monthly periodical and typically lists different events in the area.

You’re in Pennsylvania Dutch country, home of the stone-cold German heart.

Thanks I appreciate it. That's a great place to start. Yes indeed with covid going on it really doesnt make things easy at all. We are still getting the feel of the general area as well.
