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.

Berwyn is a very diverse and open community. Most of the people who move here came for the school district. I came from Central PA, where my family was the only Asian family in the area. The change in demographics here definitely helped me in feeling more connected to my own culture while still holding on to my American identity.
I really liked growing up in Berwyn. My favorite things about my town is it is local to literally anything and everything : shopping, great restaurants, unique leisure activities, including a School of Rock, indoor rock climbing and iFly. Best thing is our school district. The Tredyffrin-Easttown School District is ranked #1 for public schools in the state, and Conestoga High School is the top public high school.
The only thing I would change is our particular neighborhood does not have sidewalks. That is frustrating for me when I walk my dogs.
