Ardmore, PA is a great city part of the Main Line. I enjoy the many restaurants and stores nearby and the Paoli Thorndale line, which easily takes you to Philadelphia. Where I live, all the restaurants and stores are easily walkable, which is why I moved to Ardmore. The schools are also excellent.

My only concern is with the amount of development currently going on. I worry it will push away affordable housing for many.

I love the ardmore area, could have better food though. There are cute shops in the area and wawa of course!
This little town is brimming with excitement and things to do. Directly accessible from the train out of Philadelphia, there is shopping, great food, music, microbrew, farmers market, etc.
