Lock Haven is a place of relaxation and fresh air. It's locally known for its scenery and outdoor opportunities. If you love the outdoors, you can go hiking, tubing down the Susquehanna, swimming, boating, or you can enjoy a nice walk around town. Every year, there are boat races at Riverfest, which has a live band, games, food, and socializing events for all.
The small town gives off a homey vibe and is very old fashioned. There is one movie theater in town that offers the latest film selections. The population of Lock Haven is around 9,000 and is generally a very friendly community. A place to relax and have a nice cup of coffee is at the downtown coffee shop called Avenue 209, which brings students and townspeople together. If you like the outdoors and being in a small town setting, Lock Haven is the college for you. If you want to get away, Penn State and Bloomsburg are only an hour away. Penn State has a lot of places for food and entertainment.
