Haverford Township, Delaware County is very nice (and happens to be where I'm from). Small town feel minutes from the city, reasonable taxes, and an exceptional public school system!

I just moved up from Maryland. We had originally looked at the Coatesville area. It's not the best area to live in and it's so far away from everything. We really liked the Montgomery County area and parts of Chester County. Bucks County is a really great area, too. I work up in Plymouth Meeting at the SpringHill Suites by Marriott. There are so many things to do around this area. We are minutes away from the King of Prussia Mall. There is the Plymouth Meeting Mall here that they will be expanding beginning in January. We are also less than 20 minutes from Philly and less than 20 minutes from Valley Forge. I would definitely recommend this area. And...if you need a place to stay while you're visiting, please send me an e-mail. We would love to have you!

Smile In response to your question about Coatesville and Chester Living

Hey, first of all Chester has a very bad reputation and I'm pretty sure that's the truth. Second of all Chester County is over-priced and the taxes are high. Third of all, Coatesville is not the horrible place everyone on here is claiming. Yes, it's true that there are bad parts, but what city doesn't have it's bad areas??? I have lived in Downingtown my entire life and my mothers family is from Coatesville. All of my cousins graduated from the Coatesville School District and they are all in Med. School right now to become Oncologists, specialized nurses, etc. Downingtown School District is the one I graduated from, yes it has a great reputation, but I think that the kids are rich and stuck up that attend that school. Also, Mr. Shivers is wrong about the new construction, there is TONS of new construction all around this area. My dad is a real estate agent if you do decide that you would like to have him run an MLS Report to see what types of properties are in your price range and in what area! If not, good luck with your search and I hope this has been at least a little bit of help.

<3 Ashley

I knew a family that moved to Chester County from that area because it wasn't a safe area. We'll put it this way, two boys that go to school in Landsdowne raped a girl who had Down Syndrome. I would say as a young woman, I wouldn't want to live there on my own!

Good luck!
