We are relocating to the West Chester area from New York. We had been focusing on West Chester, but would prefer the Unionville Chadds Ford schools. We recently started considering Kennett Square. Can anyone give us a flavor of the difference between the 2 towns? Is there convenient shopping/recreation in Kennett Square? I know there is a lot of this in WC. Thanks in advance.....

Kennett is the mushroom capital of the world...rural, smells like manure, sub par schools...You should be looking from West Chester north or west for comparable or better places to live...

Wow...smells like manure! I'll have to take note of that if I visit that area. We are looking at Unionville Chadds Ford school district, and it seems that some of the homes in that district are in Kennett Square. I believe that is an excellent school system, no?

cmeag, the first post to your thread was exagerrated. Kennet schools are not sub par, and yes it is rural, but suburbia is slowly overtaking it. Its a nice area, but i would recommend the west chester area or chadds ford area. Chadds ford is very expensive one of the best school districts in the state, you really cant go wrong with it. The town of chadds ford itself is very quiet, large homes on large lots, but you can go 5 minutes away and have any kind of store/restaurant you want. Route 202 and Route 1 are both filled with retail. West chester is more crowded than chadds ford, still a great area, expensive as well, west chester also has a charming downtown with great restaurants and boutiques. Another suggestion is the garnet valley area, this borders chadds ford. Garnet valley is new suburb, many mcmansion neighborhoods, good schools, very family oriented community. Hope i cleared some things up!

I didnt realize you could find UCF schools in Kennett...if so you may want to go for it. But if you can afford Chadds Ford, I would go that way first.

Here's some discussion of Kennett, schools, smells and such:
