Hi all. I need some help from you Philly folk.

I am planning to attend Penn in the fall as a graduate student. My husband will be working in central NJ (around Skillman/Bridgewater, which is about 25 miles from Trenton). I had a breakdown today in terms of where we will live. I would love to live, if not in Philadelphia, then right outside of it, but in a place that doesn't have him commuting 1.5 hours each morning. We are in our late 20s and I would like to be in an area that is not boring. Can you offer any advice? I really don't want to live around Trenton and commute each day from there. I fear for my mental state if I don't figure this out soon.

Thank you!

My first thought would be maybe the Upper Bucks County areas, like Doyletown and the surrounding area, or maybe the Langhorne area.

Don't fret; there alot of people who monitoring this forum who know the area very well and can provide you with great advice. Good luck

Thank you very much, lititzman2003. I forgot to mention that I would need this place to have access to a SEPTA station. I know Doyletown has one, and have looked it into it.

You could live in Bucks County near the R7 (Trenton) or R3 (West Trenton) SEPTA lines.
