Hi all. I'm from NYC, have lived in Kissimmee, Fl for the past 10 years and I have had about enough of this heat. I moved from NY because of the congestion, etc. I moved here when Kissimmee was considered Cowtown. Now it's becoming a little NY. I want to get back closer to NY but not quite be in the city life ever again. I love the open spaces. I do love having something to do on weekends but it can be simply a movie.

I have 3 girls, 19, 13 and 9. I would like to move somewhere in PA where they have programs or activities, etc. But I want a small town atmosphere. We were seriously looking into Pottsville, until I read the board and now am very apprehensive about it. Some of the historical houses on the market are wonderful and so reasonably priced. It seems like a great city. But I don't like football all that much and I have all girls. I'm just not sure what other city to look into.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Rhapsody -

I was wondering, what kinds of "programs & activities" were you interested in for your girls? Horseback riding, soccer, church groups (which denomination), indoor sports now that winter's coming, ice skating? PA's a huge state, mainly filled with small towns, so the more info you could provide, the better folks can assist you in narrowing down possibilities.

Do you need work? What kind? What's reasonably priced housing to you? How close to a bigger city? PA's a beautiful state. Come on up!

Hey Rhapsody,
your story sounds just like mine. I too was from Queens NY then Jersey, currently SW Florida and I am tired of the heat and blaring sun everyday.
We lost all our trees when Hurricane Charley blew through our town.
I want to be back with the trees and change of four seasons!
We are moving to Lackawaxen Twp. in Pike County. It is close enough to the family in NY and NJ and is a very peaceful lovely area! I can't wait to go out on Lake Wallenpaupack for a boat ride!
If you need any other info, pm me
