Believe it or not, Johnstown has become somewhat civilized! We now have electricity, running water, and it's been months since we had to depend on the stage coach to get our mail. Seriously, if you've never been to Johnstown, you really can't judge. We have a top notch symphony, opera, ballet, shakespeare company, museums, professional sports, and more outdoor activities than you Philadelphians even knew existed. Skiing, hiking, whitewater rafting, snowboarding, hunting, fishing... And you don't have to drive for several hours to do it. UPJ has a host of activities, as do St. Francis University and Indiana University of PA. You can be in Pittsburgh in about an hour and a half, by the way.
