Does anyone have any apartments suggestions? My husband is being transferred in a few weeks and his homebase will be right near the King of Prussia mall. I've read about all the traffic so I think it would be a good choice to live slightly outside of the area, but he also doesn't want a very long commute. We are moving without ever getting to visit the area and any advice would be so helpful!

We are looking for a one bedroom and we'll pay upwards of $1300 for a nice complex. Thanks!!!

Try looking into Lofts at Valley Forge.

Valley Forge Towers

Lafayette at Valley Forge

Riverview Landing at Valley Forge

Riverwalk at Millenium in Conshohocken.

Valley Forge area(right next to King of Prussia) is very nice

Good luck.

Oak Hill Condominium in Penn Valley/Narberth is your best bet. Go on craigslist and search for Oak Hill Condo in Penn Valley

That's insane! That's half way between City Line and KoP. I don't recommend Conshohocken either. You either have to take 23 or 76.

OP, you can live right in KoP and save yourself a ton of time and money. Don't be spooked by the reports of traffic. It's only 202 and only on certain times. Once you live here, as I do, you'll learn never to use 202. Take a look at Gulf Mills apartments. Lofts is pretty new but you have to brave 422. Not pretty in the morning but it is short.

Is living in Penn Valley necessary? No. But is it insane? Not at all. Take back roads and get there in a half hour during rush hour.

I would suggest starting in King of Prussia. Except on Rt 202 it is a beautiful area plus 202 has a branch of every store in the world in addition to the mall which is very convenient. Try Philadelphia Apartments for Rent | Philadelphia PA Apartments | Philadelphia Pennsylvania Rentals and Apartment Ratings :: The leading source of apartment reviews by renters for renters. The zip is19406. Just be warned the Marquis on 202 has a bad reputation with lots of problems.
