Overall, my experience living in Ambler has been amazing. I am only a short drive into the city of Philadelphia, yet I am living in the suburbs and always feel safe. It is a close community of diverse people who are welcoming to everyone. There are great restaurants, stores, schools, work places and activities for people of all ages to be involved in.
We chose this area for the great public school system! There are many local activities and the town has really been built up over the years. There are wonderful restaurants, bars and walking trails in the surrounding areas.
