Berwyn is a very family friendly neighborhood full of opportunity and community. I have lived in Berwyn my whole life and I have always felt safe, loved, and supported by my neighbors. Our public schools are very good. Most students would agree that all the teacher truly want the best for all of their students. Although we have comfortable neighborhoods there is not much to do outside of that. Most students drive around with friends and go out to eat for fun. The one thing I would want to change about Berwyn is its diversity and its cluelessness to the struggle of the rest of the world. The majority of our population is Caucasian. Also most families are very money driven and invest it back in themselves. But overall, I am blessed to have grown up here.

I've lived in Berwyn my whole live, as did my mother, father, and their parents. The community is amazing and unlike anything I've seen - everyone is so welcoming and warm, they all want to be inclusive! The special events throughout the year make the town especially unique - the Turkey Raffle, the Tree Lighting, the Fourth of July parade, they all bring a close-knit community even closer. No matter where life takes me, I hope to always end up back in Berwyn.
Convenient stores nearby and great restaurants to go and eat at with family & friends! Also, nice area to just hangout.
