We're getting disgusted with not being able to afford anything other than our mortgage in Nassau Co. and are thinking of moving to PA. My husband has sent some resumes to co's in Wilmington, DE. What areas in PA are good within commuting distance (say 1/2 hr. drive)? We have 2 children, one with special needs. We're looking for low crime, good schools, housing prices in $250-$350K range. We'd like a suburban area and don't need night life (since we haven't gone out in about 11 years! LOL!

We're really in the beginning stages, but if we get the call and can sell our house, we're gone. We were even thinking that my husband can go down there during the week and rent an apt. until school is out or whatever.

Thanks for all your help!

west chester, chadds ford, concord township are nice places not to far from De. Als the ridley townsip area is good straight down 95 to DE, traffic can be annoying coming home on 95 though.

Bethel township in the Garnet Valley School District is nice. We lived there for 6 years. There was a big housing boom when we were moving but the school district was able to keep up with it. Very commutable to Wilmington.

I lived in West Chester and commuted to the MBNA buildings
in Wilmington for 6 months. Sometimes it took me over an hour
to go 25 miles. The traffic is THAT bad. I tried a few different
ways through Del. or Chadds Ford/Rt.100 and found them to be
somewhat less stressful but in the end it was what happened in
Wilmington city that determined the arrive time. I had a clutch part
and a brake cylindar go bad within 6 months of stop 'n go through
Wilmington. An absolute nitemare !!
