Quality of Life

With a natural setting of breathtaking beauty, good schools, abundant cultural activities and a proximity to some of the world’s great urban centers, the Oil Region has a quality of life that is second to none.

And all of this is available at a very favorable cost of living, much less than surrounding and competitive areas.

The Oil Region is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts. The wild and scenic Allegheny River runs through Venango County. Public parks offer hiking, bicycling, boating, swimming, fishing, camping and more. And everywhere you will find breathtaking scenery, wildlife and other natural treasures.

But there are cultural assets as well, including theater, music, performing and visual arts. History is alive everywhere in the Oil Region, the birthplace of the petroleum industry.
