But then again I am talking about Lower Bucks county. The other areas may be better.

Having lived and traveled all over the area I can indeed compare where I live now to say upper Bucks where I once lived and it is a world of difference.

People don't seem to understand,it's not that easy to 'just go back'. That was a long time ago. Times have changed,Finances have changed,and situations have changed. I'm trapped here for now and that's just the way it is.

I agree Lower Bucks County is NOT appealing.

That said--

Chester County
Oaks/Collegeville area in Montco
parts of Delaware county like Radnor, Newtown Square
Main Line

Bar none the best burbs with housing, nice feel, attractive, great landscapes

Default Main Line Quiz

I'm a native Main Liner and it was great growing up there - Radnor Twp, but I would never move back - too crowded, too much traffic and it's lsot the appeal it had in my youth - farms, great suburbs, minimal traffic, minimal nouveau riche in Beemers, etc. Anyhow.. I think today Kimberton, Exton, Birchrunville are about as close to the Main Line of my youth. For your entertainment, though, I offer the following:

A link to my quiz "How Main Line Are You?" Purely for entertainment, but I hoped to capture some of the preppyness that defines the Main Line, or at least used to.

You should post that link on Urban Dictionary.com
Some people post there with heated opinions about the Main Line.

Default Relocating

What is the best county to live in Chester or Montgomery? we are looking in the area to relocate from Virginia.

We are looking for an area that has Low Crime, affordable housing, quiet yet well developed, accessable to shopping ,good medical facilities and well educated communities. Have any suggestions?

Also, we have found some inexpensive houses in Pottstown. How is that area? I have heard conflicting opinions on here. Is there a nuclear plant close to that area?

OMG don't move here from Virginia! Unless it's the DC suburbs,the Phila area is almost the opposite of VA. Selfish people,unthinkable crimes,etc. I know because I lived in both areas. But as far as the counties I would say that Chester is closer to what you're looking for. It's pretty wide open and not much crime. Montgomery is more crowded and thus would probably have more crime,nothing serious though.
Pottstown in an ok place from what I've seen,and yes there are power plants in Pottstown but I've heard they're pretty well contained.

I'm not sure where Stuck lives but its probably not Chester or Montgomery County based on his comments. Crime is not a factor in either county unless you go looking for it. the exception might be parts of downtown Norristown(Montgomery).

Stuck is always complaining about the attitudes of people in this area. I've never had a problem with anyone. If you are nice and friendly to people and neighbors its usually reciprocated. Hmm, Perhaps thats part of Stucks problem.

I actually like Pottstown, it's an older town that has some grungy areas but it also has some very nice areas and the cost of of living is much cheaper compared to areas closer to Philadelphia like King of Prussia or Malvern.
