Hello Everyone! My husband and I are moving from Detroit. We are looking for a racially mixed area with good school districts (we have a toddler). Our price range for housing is max 350k (we would also consider a condo). Are there any suburbs near the city that would fit that description?


Thanks

Look in center city, Queen Village, and West Mt. Airy. Those areas have the best public schools in Philly. Of course there are also top rated private schools. Check out and post at phillyblogdotcom.

Some of the bigger towns in the area like Media,West Chester,Norristown,Conshohocken, Phoenixville areas all have good schools and a fair amount of diversity. West Mt. Airy in Philadlephia is also very diverse and is an amazing neighborhood.

Good luck

check out cheltenham and abington townships in montgomery county (right outside the city limits). they're both pretty diverse and seem to be in the price range you said.

Check out downtown Berwyn or Wayne. Little houses for that price, excellent area, schools, 15 miles from downtown philly and main line train.

Detroit is one of the few places in the country that actually makes Philly look good!

StuckPA, where do you live that you hate it here so much?

Why live in a place that you are unhappy?
