Comprised of cities such as Wilkes-Barre, Pittston, Scranton, Hazleton, and hundreds of smaller communities, Northeastern Pennsylvania (NEPA) is a unique combination of modern businesses and historical sites—a place that is open to new ideas, but brimming with deep rooted traditions.
You can choose an urban life in a loft apartment or in a Victorian home in the city, a suburban life in an established neighborhood or in a brand new development, or a rural life with acres of beautiful land. All these choices are within minutes of each other. You can live an active life in NEPA — our sports venues and outdoor recreation sites prove it. The region is home to the AAA affiliate of the New York Yankees and the AHL affiliate of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Fans of golf and NASCAR are equally satisfied as national competition in both sports are held here. But more than that, NEPA offers important advantages for everyone.
NEPA is affordable too. The cost of housing and annual property taxes are lower than competing metro areas. Five major highways mean short commutes and leave more time for recreation in your day.
