I'm surprised at how many people can't spell Philly. Regardless, I think the best Philadelphia suburb is MEDIA PA. It's the perfect streetcar suburb for Philadelphia. If not Media, then Springfield.

The main line is a snotty, pretentious area, so that knocks them out for me.

Agree with Media. Media and West Chester should be listed.

All right all you anal Phillydelphians out there. It's Philly!!!!

Crap, I'm glad I cleared this up before I tried to spell the nickname in front of my mother. She grew up in Torresdale, while I grew up in the wilds of Bucks County. LOL...

I know West Chester is nice, but it's a bit large compared to the others. With Media, I do admit I really don't know much about it at all. Dated a Greek chick from there though.

I can't comment on NJ towns as I haven't spent any quality time there for a while.

As far the PA choices go, for me it's a toss-up between Media and Wayne. I admit that I'd probably go for Media as well.

I do need to get up to Doylestown and check that out some more though. It would probably at least get the "bronze" vote from me.

Doylestown is quite a bit like Media and West Chester. It's also the county seat, so has the big court house and law offices like Media and West Chester. West Chester is neat because it has the College for the young vibe but Media has a trolley and Trader Joe's!

Doylestown is very nice but so far from Philly, I would not really consider it a Philly burb. Its an hour from cc to drive in morning and nights
