Convenient and Quiet

 

Wright Township combines the tranquility of a suburban oasis with the simplicity of small town life.

And it’s all just a twenty-minute drive from large cities like Hazleton and Wilkes-Barre. The town is mostly made up of idyllic suburban neighborhoods and stretches of rural, country roads dotted with homes and churches. And you are greeted by beautiful, dense state forests and game lands at almost every turn.

Wright Township also has its fair share of restaurants and local shops, but they generally leave the noise and bustle of larger shopping districts to their neighbors. That said, the nearest grocery store is less than ten minutes away.
