I think you might like Wyoming County, PA. It's only about a half-hour northwest of the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area, yet it remains very rural, unspoiled, and its largest town (Tunkhannock) only has about 2,000 residents. Here's a photo tour I snapped of Tunkhannock to give you an idea of what to expect from Wyoming County:

Northeastern Pennsylvania Photo Tour: PART TWO

The town of Tunkhannock has a Wal-Mart, Burger King, Perkins, McDonald's, and a few other smaller chains on its outskirts with a bunch of mom-and-pop stores in its cute downtown. There's also a historic small theatre in town. A half-hour drive will bring you to malls, museums, sporting events, concerts, etc. in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Default Believe it or not...

...I'm going to suggest the Reading area. Obviously not the city, but between Reading and Pottstown. There's also a nice area slightly west of Reading in North Heidelberg township.

And there's plenty to do in the Reading area. Wyomissing, for example, has lots shopping and dining available.

It's definitely worth considering.

I already did a winter photo tour of Nay Aug Park, as well as a more recent one featuring the new treehouse. Here are the links:

New Photo Tour---Nay Aug Park, Scranton

Nay Aug Park is my favorite spot in the city of Scranton. All the city residents like to do is whine and gripe about how much of their tax dollars were spent on it, but I just feel so happy whenever I go there.

A lot of PA falls within this category. I guess it would be better to know if the job market is an issue, school district, what you want to have in the area. That could help narrow the range a bit. So far only eastern PA'ers have replied, but there are just as many western PA areas that could fit the bill.

I hope that you would consider the State College area. Centre County is very rural, it has beautiful senery. Penns Valley, Bald Eagle, and Bellefonte are just some of the great areas to live that have great schools, low crime, and friendly people. They are great places to raise children in! For jobs and shopping, State College is just 10-20 min. away! (Penn State is there!) Let me show you some of the amazing rural properties in the area:
