We are looking for a rent house in a good school district within reason to the Philadelphia airport (25 mile radius) I have 2 daughters 13 and 14. I would prefer something with a little bit of land or at least the homes spaced out a little bit. We are looking to spend about 1500 - 2000 mth. Any information on cities that would help me find something will be greatly appreciated.

Ridley Park and Folsom seem decent and I think the rent is much cheaper than your range! You will probably like Lower Merion, though I'm not sure if that satisfies your distance requirements.

I agree with the Ridley Park suggestion and also think you could look into Wallingford, Springfield, or Media. All good areas with nice homes/apts., good schools and family oriented.

As I've pointed out to many who are relocating to the area south of Philadelphia looking for close proximity to the airport...consider South Jersey just across the Betsy Ross Bridge.

Haddonfield and Cherry Hill are among the best school districts within a overall highly regarded New Jersey public school system. It's about a 20 mile commute to the airport area. The area is quite safe and a good place to raise kids.

Just off of Craigslist I found a few options for homes that meet your criteria
