I have lived in Conshohocken for about two years now and I never want to move away. The small city-like town is perfect for people who want to live in Philadelphia without all the hustle and bustle of city life. Everything you will ever need is either within walking distance or a 5 minute car ride. It is a completely safe town. I honestly wouldn’t worry about leaving my house and car doors unlocked. ( I obviously do not do this because you should never leave anything of importance unlocked no matter where you are just an example of how safe the town is ) overall I give Conshohocken 5 stars, it is a beautiful, clean, and fun suburb of Philadelphia, it’s even great for children! The city just reconstructed a whole new playground in the small park we have and it’s pretty amazing to be honest, wish I had it as a kid 😂.

Conshohocken is a beautiful area! Lots to do with your family. You always feel safe! Yet the people around here can ( at times ) act a bit entitled. This attitude will reach as far down to their children. I honestly don’t think anyone has realizes it though, so it’s not on purpose. I do wish there were more affordable rental properties. Landlords around here seem to like to rent out the nice houses to packs of college kids for an insane amount of money.
My parents and grandparents were all residents of Conshohocken, and it shows. There is nothing better than walking down the street to pick up bread from the bakery, and it being similar to a social outing. As you walk down the street and into the bakery you may find your old baby sitter, local business owner, long lost friend, or a friendly neighbor. It is not uncommon to find cars double parked throughout the one square mile that is Conshohocken, gossiping with an old friend they spotted walking down the street. I always wanted to move, but how could anyone ever leave.
