Hey all,<br>
We're looking to move from the Baltimore area to York County, PA. I'd love to hear anything you have to say about the area - schools, neighborhoods, taxes, libraries, general cost of living stuff, people, anti-vax friendly doctors (although we might just drive the 30 minutes to our's in MD). Thanks!!

Hi there!<br>
We are also from Baltimore (Timonium) and moved to York, PA. We have lived here for 3.5 years and I love it! I still go down to MD for naturopath and our dentist, but we are slowly staying up here more and more. I don't miss the traffic in anyway! There is a great health food store out in the country a bit called Sonnewald. Giant has a good sized health food section now too.<br>
My dd is 10 and goes to the Waldorf School up here, so I don't know much about the public schools.<br>
Feel free to ask any other questions you can think of.

Hey! What neighborhoods/areas south of York might you recommend? We're kind of looking in Spring Grove, Glen Rock, Stewartstown, Shrewsbury, New Freedom, maybe Red Lion. Is one a little nicer than the other?<br><br>
We're hoping to homeschool, but I'm not totally sure if we are, and if not I'm hoping to use a private Catholic school.<br><br>
DH is still going to be driving to MD for work (Cockeysville).

I am in York County too...<br><br>
If your home budget is about $1 million, I know a great little farm for sale in Glen Rock (ok, not so little it is a hundred acres +)<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:<br><br>
You will want to come to the Fairy Festival at Spoutwood Farm, first weekend in May. They also run a CSA.<br><br>
PM me if you want to get together at the Fairy Festival!<br><br>
You might want to look at Jacobus - a nice lake, a great antique store, coffee shop, and Brown's Farm Market.

We live in Cumberland County, so I can't speak for York County. I know there are a lot of AP moms over there somewhere though.<br><br>
I got a flyer for the Fairy Festival at my local health food store in Carlisle... have you been to past ones? What's it like?
