Please help. I'm considering a move to Pa, we have narrowed it down to either York County or Lancaster County

In York we see that we can get more for our money as far as a house, newer & larger.

But can you tell me the Pros & Cons of York when comparing it to Lancaster county?

How well is the medical care? Crime, Taxes, employment, Schools, etc.

Please respond.

Thank you --- Tony

York can be nice. Harley davidson is there. you are close to baltimore- so flights are cheaper. where as harrisburg flights are expensive.

alot of amish have sold their farms in lancaster county. come up here and buy 2-3x the size farm. develppers are putting up subdivisions left and right there i heaard.

I lived in York County for years! it's nice and affordable...you have hot rod weekend in June and the harley davidson plant which is huge. The economy isnt that bad. The healthcare is good in york but hospital wise lancaster wins!! i couldnt tell you alot about the schools in lancaster but the schools in york county are excellent! york is a good location because you're 30 minutes away from lancaster...40 minutes away from harrisburg...and an hour away from baltimore! lancaster though definitley has MORE going on and BETTER SHOPPING! thats all the information i can offer....hope it helps!

There is a lot of racial tension in York, even after the 1969 race riots that the local paper and media keeps alive. It's also a place where Skinheads march and protest every year causing a lot of problems.
