We are looking to put a bid on a house in Langhorne PA. What kind of a community is it? Is there a town pool? Camps? We have two young children 6 and 8.

Thanks in advance!

Langhorne is two different scenes.

It's the old train town, with big foursquares and Victorians, on picture perfect square town blocks, with quaint churches.

It's also typical suburbia, with crowded main drags leading to car dealerships, strip malls and the big mall on Route One.

Yes, there are parks, pools and camps nearby. You'll find church camps, swim camps and camp camps.

Langhorne is nice but very congested these days! There are town pools I would contact middletown 215)750-3800 They will be able to tell you the locations. Its low crime and the schools are great!!

Well, Sesame place is fun but so crowded in the summer it is just overbearing. Pool is the way to go imo. Langhorne is nice but look around. It's a sprawling place with some charming parts and some parts that are run down.

Langhorne boro is historic and beautiful. Then there lots of developments, older and newer, nicer and not-as-nice. Agreed that the Mall area is very congested. School district taxes are very high.

Be careful about anything in the Neshaminy Creek flood zone, toward Hulmeville and Penndel, I think the area is "Langhorne Manor" or "Langhorne Terrace" but I could be mistaken. Those people have experienced horrible floods, but that would have to be disclosed when they are selling their houses.

Default great place!

Hi! I grew up in Langhorne and it was nice. There were nice people, great schools, and plenty of stuff for us to do as kids. We were all on swim team at Breezy Point swim club and we practically lived there every summer. When we got older we rode our bikes to Newtown. There is a bridge that will take them over the bypass so that they are safe. None of the riding is done on streets or sidewalks until you get to Newtown. It's a great place for your kids. Wish I could afford to raise mine there.
