Collegeville Reviews

Collegeville is a fast growing suburban area about 40 minutes from Central Philadelphia. It mostly consists of neighborhoods, and shopping centers and sits sandwiched between the slightly more urban Phoenix, Royersford, and Spring-City. Whilst Collegeville is pretty quiet, it is close enough to other cities and towns for there to be a variety of activities and things to do. Collegeville proves to be a very safe area, and luckily has access to great public schools nearby. Since Collegeville is still growing, and has access to a lot of great benefits, I can say I recommend it for anyone who wishes for a quality suburban area. I have been living here for 5 years and can say that it has always felt like home.

I've lived my whole life in Collegeville. It's a suburb that has grown significantly, undergoing many commercial and retail construction. Personally, I preferred the fields and farms of Collegeville, but I must admit that it is quite convenient to have large supermarkets and outlet store centers so close. As far as Collegeville's geographical location goes, I really think it's wonderful. It's only about 30-40 minutes in to Philadelphia, not far from the Jersey Shore or the mountains, NYC and DC are easy distances, and there's a national park (Valley Forge) and two long bike trails surrounding it. I believe that Collegeville is quite similar to other suburb towns in the US but I will always love because it's my childhood town.
Collegeville in my opinion, is a great place to live, but it's not the best if you're looking for a diverse area and cheap living. Other than that, there are good schools for children of all ages and there are many plazas you can shop in. It's also insanely safe- you'll never here of anything too crazy here in Collegeville.
