York, Pennsylvania is a city defined by its colonial architecture, gothic churches, and historic sites. A city that rose out of the ashes left behind by the Revolutionary War, York is an important piece of American history. But as it is tied so closely to the past, York is a vibrant, modern city on the move. Walk the pedestrian-friendly historic downtown and shop the unique stores there — or enjoy one of the many fine restaurants.
Your York apartment will place you near major employers such as Stauffer Biscuit Company and Harley Davidson. York College of Pennsylvania offers several baccalaureate and master’s programs on its picturesque 190-acre campus. Thirteen of York’s factories are open to the pubic, so spend a day watching how potato chips (or violins or even a Harley-Davidson) are made.
A city of festivals, York has events year-round. The Box Lunch Revue runs from May through August. Held at Cherry Lane Park, take your lunch break outside and enjoy the live music — everything from classical to jazz. The Olde York Street Fair is held in May with artisans, food, rides, and live entertainment. Yorkfest Art Festival is a fine arts and music extravaganza with over 80 featured artists and a community jazz concert.
With city-owned parking facilities, endless recreational activities, beautiful parks, and a rich history, renting in York provides the best of Central Pennsylvania.
