Attractions and quality of life benefits to living and working in the community:  Away from the bustle … close to the fun! Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the greater Waynesboro area is set in southern Franklin County, PA, amidst the backdrop of scenic farmland, rolling fruit orchards, and historic landmarks. Simply stated, it’s where the city comes to relax. This small rural community has a service area of 30,000 with an excellent school district; Penn State Mont Alto close; and many recreational attractions.  Outdoors offers hunting, fishing, hiking (Appalachian Trail minutes away), skiing (Liberty & Whitetail), golf, tennis, and pickleball. While our town and its surrounding municipalities sit away from the bustle of more metropolitan locales, the area doesn’t lack for culture, activities, or entertainment. Nearly every weekend, you can find something to do here – from enjoying an intimate dinner at one of our eateries to perusing the downtown galleries of Destination ARTS! to attending a historic or cultural event at Renfrew Park. 1-hour commute to DC, Baltimore and Harrisburg, 2 hours to Penn State Beaver Stadium, 3 hours to Philadelphia (home of the 2018 Super Bowl Champs!) and Pittsburgh.
