This is a wonderful community. There is something for everyone, museums, parks, dog parks, shops, dining. The area is very scenic and beautiful. The people are very nice and welcoming, although, there is little diversity.
Review Buckingham Township
There are a lot of neighborhoods with large houses that look very similar. However, all are immaculately trimmed and landscaped and most have a decent-sized backyard often with a pool and patio. Outside of the neighborhoods, there is a countryside to this area, where I live, in which houses are often much more spaced out. There are a lot of farms with nice houses on the property. The cost of housing and living is definitely on the higher end. The lowest quality housing lies on the outskirts of Doylestown, and is termed the "trailer park" but is really not low quality housing at all. There are not a lot of abandoned houses or lots; most are filled in by businesses.
This area is safe and has a good quality education system. However, if I could do it all over, I would not choose to live here. There's a lack of diversity and therefore a lot of close-mindedness.
