Ambler is a great little town! The people are friendly, there are great restaurants and community activities, the accessibility of public transportation is very good, and there is a strong community feel in Ambler.
Review Ambler
Quiet but very lively during the summer. The neighbors are nice and the since I live near Main Street, I have easy access to places to restaurants. Some of the stores on that street sell nice products although a bit expensive. I wish the farmer's market was bigger. The local YMCA is nice and big.
Ambler offers a great scenic environment for children and adults, although public transportation is scare. Buses usually run once an hour.
