Berwyn Reviews

18 reviews
All Categories
I grew up in Berwyn and went to elementary and middle school in Berwyn. I left the town when I turned 20 years old, moving to a nearby small town with lower rent prices. When I became financially stable again, I moved back, because living anywhere else wasn't comfortable for me. Great town, shuts down early (nothing is open after 10 pm) but safe and quiet.
Review Berwyn
The town is very peaceful, calm, and quiet. Nature is not disturbed by the city life. If someone wants to go to the city and go out, the city is not far away. Forge Valley is beautiful. It is a nice place to exercise or to just go on a picnic as a family.
I wouldn't trade where I grew up for anything. There are an incredible amount of resources, food, community events, and easy access to the city. It is very safe and encouraging and there is always something to get involved in.
