Tips for Relocating to Haverford, PA
Consistently ranked as one of the best places to live in the state, Philadelphia’s Main Line is actually composed of 16 individual suburban towns spread across three separate counties.
One of the most popular Main Line destinations is the residential community of Haverford, PA. If you’re interested in relocating to Philadelphia’s Main Line, then Haverford is an excellent place to call home. Here’s some helpful information about this Main Line gem.
Center City Convenience with a Suburban Setting
One of the perks of Main Line residency is the proximity to Philadelphia’s central business district – Center City neighborhood. Home to City Hall, Center City also includes such popular neighborhoods such as Rittenhouse Square, Old City, Society Hill, Logan Square, Washington Square West and the French Quarter.
Since Haverford is just a few miles away from this bustling city setting, many professionals and students chose to live in this serene suburb and commute to Philadelphia. Haverford is located near several major roadways for fast, easy commutes to Center City. Whether they’re using I-76, 476 (AKA the “Blue Route), Lancaster Avenue, City Line Avenue or Kelly Drive, Haverford residents can reach Center City, South Philly, University City or the surrounding suburbs in just a few minutes.
While driving to the city is always an option, many Haverford residents prefer to take advantage of SEPTA’s light rail line. The Haverford Train Station makes commuting to Center City and other Philadelphia and suburban neighborhoods easy. Since this rail line also connects with 30th Street Station, Haverford residents also enjoy the opportunity to easily travel to New York, Boston or Washington D.C. via AMTRAK.
Access to Prestigious Schools
Though the Main Line is close to many of the city’s finest colleges, those institutions are not the only options for Haverford residents. Students in this suburban community don’t have to travel very far to attend a prestigious university or college since three of the country’s most respected educational institutions are in their backyard: Haverford College, Bryn Mawr College (one of the historic “Seven Sisters” colleges) and Villanova University. Since Haverford is located near these fine colleges and universities, you’ll not only mingle with a large population of undergraduate and graduate students, you’ll also be neighbors with plenty of professors and faculty members, too.
Beautiful Scenery Everywhere
One of the advantages that Haverford has over its Main Line neighbors is its bevy of beautiful parks, ponds, trails and playgrounds. For leisurely strolls and lush landscapes, the Arboretum at Haverford College can’t be beat – especially in the fall when the leaves change. When winter calls, lace up your ice skates and head on over to the Skatium at Veteran’s Park. During the summer, the grandiose gardens of Chanticleer dazzle and delight with their vibrant colors and rich aromas.
