Hello, I have read some threads about counties and some general information. Have some questions about towns, not interested in the city proper. Not interested in NJ.

Possible work at where 63 and 1 come together, that general area, Woodhaven Rd and Roosevelt Blvd. Is on the northeast section of the city. West of 95 and south of 276.

General interest is in a town less than an hour distance, not at top of price range for a house. No children in the house anymore, grown. Want a safe area, town in general. May or may not bring a boat, not sure of marinas along the Delaware nearby.

Interest in outdoor activities, fish, hunt, shooting clubs. Know some things about PA laws but would want a gun-friendly town. Not houses stacked on top of each other. Thank you.

If you want to be close to a marina then Bensalem is the place to be but i'd be much happier in the Upper Southampton, Huntingdon Valley, Hatboro, Warminster area which gives you a 30 minute ride to work and the marina. Bensalem isn't as nice as those towns. The Lower Southampton, Feasterville area would fall right in the middle in location and price. It's not a bad area as long as your not near old lincoln hwy. Langhorne is also worth looking into. Out of all the areas i mentioned Huntingdon Valley is the most expensive. Upper Southampton is my favorite of them all.

Excellent choices, deadhead948, and don't forget to include Langhorne, Yardley, Jenkintown and Newtown to be close to areas with a "town" feel

Another nice area that is loaded with townhomes and condos, but still has an open space feel, would be Holland. It's still within around a half hour of your job. Newtown, Yardley and especially Jenkintown is putting a lot more distance between the things you mentioned you'd like to be around but they are nice towns. I know Southampton has a shooting range or at least always had one. Lots of dear hunters in the area.

Deadhead, thank you for the additional information. I will keep Holland in mind. I have not looked up the ranges yet. I had an interview last week so I have to see where it goes. Thanks again. Great info.

Houses that are not on top of each other .... I say Yardley, Holland, Richboro, the older part of Doylestown and also look into Buckingham and even into New Hope - very nice.

OK, more great information. Thanks. Is adding up to a variety of possible choices. I have dug up some preliminary information on a boating forum. I have not checked gun forums yet. Thanks again for all the latest considerations.
