The Wright Center is located in historic Scranton, Pennsylvania. The Lackawanna and Wyoming river valleys — home to Scranton, its nearby neighbor, Wilkes-Barre, and a host of smaller towns — have a collective population of more than 500,000 people. The Valley, as the area is affectionately known, is located in the verdant setting of Northeastern Pennsylvania, or NEPA, with rolling farm land, rich woodlands and excellent ski mountains within a quick drive of downtown.
Scranton is just two hours by car from New York City and Philadelphia, making those destinations an easy day-trip or weekend away. Yet Scranton offers a lower cost of living than many urban areas — and does so without sacrificing cultural benefits such as a philharmonic orchestra, lively arts scene, restaurants and night spots, a national historic park and professional sports teams. Also within easy reach are many four-season opportunities for outdoor recreation in the surrounding countryside.
Scranton and nearby areas offer a variety of neighborhoods well-suited to single people, couples and families, with affordable accommodations, multiple educational offerings, friendly people and easy access to shopping.
With its “home town feel,” the area has made many newcomers feel welcome to this historic place.
