the trip to and from philly in rush hour would be annoying and it would take around 1 hour. Parts of the trip are scenic but after years of living here, I just don't really notice it anymore. If your buying a home you get more value out away from the city everyone has to deal with the commute. Larger lots quieter neighborhoods, there is also a train that runs directly into philly from that area.

I guess you are talking about Center City Philly. During rush hour figure about an hour and a half to 2 hours from Sellersville.

Default Sellersville - A good fit for a single woman?

I am considering a possible move to Sellersville after I retire in a few months -- first I have to visit there but it sounds like what I will be looking for -- nice downtown with shops, park for a dog, reasonably priced real estate and shopping nearby. I've seen the posts on this thread and from what I've read, Sellersville sounds like a lovely town.

One of my main concerns is -- is Sellersville too family-oriented for a single person? I know there is a theatre and I'll find things to do but I don't know if that will be difficult, particularly if many of the town's activities revolve around young families and school children.

Also, I'm coming from New York City and was wondering, are there a lot of New York transplants in that area of Pennsylvania?

Thank you.

The Sellersville Theatre has great shows, including Joseph Arthur on 7-29. In my opinion JA is the most profound singer songwriter since Dylan. This is my bold proclamation. Joseph Arthur.

In terms of social life for a single person, there is the mundane chain store, sports bar vibe with a lot of very boring people who watch family guy and talk about football all the time. I recommend making the 15 or so mile trip to Bethlehem and hanging out on Main St or on 4th St by Lehigh. I would also suggest sometimes visiting Philadelphia and hanging out in Center City.

Thank you. Although Sellersville sounds lovely, I have a feeling that there may not be many activities for me in the town itself. This information is very helpful.

Hi Bonnie:

As a single person coming from NYC, you may be a little bored with Sellersville. Don't get me wrong, it is a wonderful town. This is coming from a single guy in his 30's who moved here three years ago. I really enjoy living here.

The town has a lot going for it, especially the park system (I know there has been town meetings discussing a dog park as well). It is safe, the school systems are good, and it is affordable (now) for this area.

As far as dining is concerned, my favorite places are the Washington House, Maize, and The Perk. The Washington House is an old historic place with a great atmosphere, great food, and service. They have regular wine and beer tastings. In addition, this place is an opentable.com Diner's Choice winner in several categories for Bucks County. Maize is a small restaurant in neighboring Perkasie that offers fine dining. The Perk is also a historic landmark in the area with a more casual atmosphere and great food with great prices. (Check out the famous tuesday night steak sandwich special for $2.50 if you ever get out this way.... but get there early).

Unfortunately, there are not a lot of great choices for nightlife in town, but the restored Sellersville Theater is an excellent place to see music and comedy. Some fairly big acts roll through the theater these days. Some of the other local bar/restaurants are getting in a bit of live entertainment these days, but the choices are very limited. Despite the town's lack of night life, there are other more active places a short drive away (Doylestown, Montgomeryville, Bethlehem, etc.)

If you are looking for a place with a little more night life and NYC transplants, the Lehigh Valley area may be your best bet (Bethlehem, Easton, etc.)

Hope this helps and good luck

Default sellersville

Thanks so much. I think I'll probably check out the Easton area.

I appreciate your input. It's been really helpful.
