The best of all worlds. Twenty minutes from hustle and bustle. One hour from beaches. Forty minutes from skiing in the winter. Surrounded by farms and nature, hiking and the best shopping.
Review Chester Township
I love the familiarity of my home area, but it would be nice to live someplace warmer and cheaper. I also enjoy the quality and variey of food near me.
There are many local businesses. They are just sub par. You really do not have the leave the town for anything really, except a movie theater.
