Buena Vista Township Reviews

Buena Vista Township is in a beautiful location and was a good place to grow up. Family friendly events and community gatherings are abundant for all age ranges. Living here means you have the peace and quiet of a rural/suburban community while simultaneously being less than an hour away from both the city (Philadelphia) and the beach. A few choice high schools (vocational, public, and private) are available to students in this area, giving them an input on their learning and ultimately their future.

Not much minor crime but our area has had an outstanding amount of major crime such as murder, large drug busts etc that one would not expect to have in a little country town. Cops quick to respond to minor traffic violations but not so fast to respond to 911 calls. To be fair, it is located between two districts, local and state police.
Though the area I live in in particular is a great family raising neighborhood, there are parts of my town that are potentially dangerous. And it takes away from its overall quality.
