Williamsport and its surrounding areas are a great place to live, raise a family, participate in community activities, obtain an education, and make lifelong friendships. My husband and I moved into the Williamsport area 25 years ago from Altoona. Altoona and Williamsport have much in common regarding size, population, and general demographics, yet are different in so many ways. We raised our 3 children here who participated in many sporting activities, wonderful local music school, attended college here, formed friendships, and are raising their own families here. The transition this city has gone through since we moved here is amazing!
