Small, quiet town, in a mostly rural area. There are some good restaurants in town, and the parks, community center and community theater are nice, but otherwise there's not a whole lot to do in Birdsboro, and you need a car to get around to other nearby towns and cities for work or other activities.

I grew up in Birdsboro and loved my house and school. I had a great experience grown guy with a very safe neighborhood and family friends all close by. my high school sports is what got me into college in order to go to a good school and have the opportunity to grow up in a great place. Birdsboro needs to add some more night life and other activities in the surrounding area in order to create better opportunities for the younger generations in the area. overall I really did love and enjoyed living in this town over the years.
Growing up i fell into enjoying pop punk, so I was almost entirely taken by the "I hate this small town mentality", but in all reality, its not bad. Crime isn't big, the people are friendly, and its got a large amount of nice and caring people. It isn't the greatest small town, but it definitely was a a good one to grow up in and provided some good memories.
