Default Plymouth Meeting and Lafayette Hill

I drove by these two suburbs and they seem like a good place to raise a family. Does anybody have an opinion on these suburbs?

They are both very solid, affluent-leaning suburbs. Those communities are part of the well-regarded Plymouth-Whitemarsh School District. You should not have any worries.

Plymouth Meeting is not that expensive, but Lafayette Hill is definitely on the pricier side.

I grew up in Plymouth Meeting and went to Plymouth-Whitemarsh High School. Yes, both communities are great places to raise a family. Neither are expensive as in Main Line expensive, but neither are cheap, either. I find PM to be more accessible, at least to the local highways and shopping. It also has a more varied housing stock. LH is harder to get to for the simple fact that Germantown Pike drops to one lane each way just East of the Turnpike interchanges and it gets very congested in that area, heading toward LH. Of course LH is very close to Chestnut Hill (in Philadelphia), and you can drive to one of about 3 or 4 SEPTA train stations from anywhere in about 10 minutes.
