... but I haven't had any trouble yet in the Cumberland Valley! Some people think that going to college in central Pennsylvania would be boring; that there is nothing more to do than look at the scenery. But, anyone who thinks that is wrong! Carlisle is a great town with tons of options for eating out, shopping, and overall fun. Neighboring towns like Boiling Springs and Mechanicsburg offer even more experiences.
And if it really is the scenery that you enjoy, where better to be than right in the middle of the Appalachian Mountains! There are scenic hikes to be found everywhere, such as the Cumberland Valley Rail Trail. And what's especially great is that there are a number of other colleges in the area, which means that there is a good number of people my age. And that can only mean one thing:

Colleges=College students=Lots of things for college students to do!
