Where you’ll live

With a population of about 75,000, Scranton is home to a growing downtown business district and several colleges and universities. There are plenty of outdoor activities, a vibrant arts community and a diverse population. 

The nearby City of Wilkes-Barre is nestled alongside the Susquehanna River, where you’ll find many venues to enjoy the beautiful landscape of the Wyoming Valley. Kirby Park and Coal Street Park offer outdoor space to play and relax. The renovated River Common area features an amphitheater for outdoor performances, walking corridors, a boat launch and space for concerts and festivals.

Wilkes-Barre’s Public Square is the central point of the city’s parades and celebrations, hosting many events throughout the year. A farmers market, which runs from late June to October each year, brings fresh produce, homemade food, crafts and music downtown each Thursday. The Fine Arts Fiesta is a week-long festival on the Square offering live performances and art exhibits.
