Mifflin County offers a very pleasant and satisfying environment in which to live and work. Lifestyle amenities, largely focused on outdoor and family-oriented activities, reflect the small town character of the communities in the County. Although rural in character, nearby Penn State University and the Harrisburg metropolitan area (about 60 minutes) provide County residents access to a variety of larger city amenities including entertainment and cultural attractions. Theatrical productions, concerts, and intercollegiate sporting events are very popular among County residents. If you desire major league entertainment, you can be in Pennsylvania’s two major cities in three-hours to take in professional sports and high-end cultural events.
