York, often referred to as the White Rose City, is a city located in the state of Pennsylvania, and is known for its friendly locals, highly affordable housing, and its trademark delicacies like Pierogies and Scrapple.

Often described as a quiet and peaceful place to live, York offers a lot of life outdoors, with county parks that include the Heritage Rail Trail, Rocky Ridge, and John C. Rudy County Park.

Being home to a number of reputable universities, while also offering a very low cost of living, York could be a fantastic option for prospective students.

PROS

  • Apartment rental prices are very affordable in York, with the average rental prices for 2-bedroom, 3-bedroom, and 4-bedroom apartments all being within the range of $1,000-$1,200 per month. This offers flexibility to tenants when deciding on whether to live with roommates or not.

  • Residents here get the benefits of getting all four seasons in York, with summers getting as hot as 31 degrees celsius, and winters as cold as minus 6 degrees celsius. Getting to experience the falling of the leaves in Autumn is a pleasure that not everyone in the US gets to enjoy.

  • Cultural diversity is one of York’s strong points, with many residents being from other US states, or even from other countries.

CONS

  • Many residents complain that it’s difficult to drive around York, and Pennsylvania generally, without paying a lot of toll fees.

  • There are no beaches or mountainous areas to take advantage of in York, and you will need a car in order to get out of the city to find these kinds of features, as no public transport options are provided.
