    I like the Suburban feel. Also it is close to the Delaware border so it is easy to commute between the two states to avoid PA sales tax. Overall a safe, accessible, family town.
    Review Boothwyn
    Retail stores in this area are often few and seem repetitive. What i would like to see is more of the typical town center shopping networks where there are streets of stores that can be walked through, not always a drive from store-to-store experience.
    The weather is pretty consistent, cold in the winter and hot in the summer. Bizarre storms occur maybe once a year, but typically not frequently.
