Devon is a very nice place to grow up and go to school, however the people living in Devon are a different story. Most people living in Devon has grown up there, gone to Penn State, and then ended up right back where they grew up. This creates an environment where parents live through their children.

It's very safe and the community is connected. There's space between everyone as well, by that I mean if you don't want to be bothered by others in the community you can do that. Overall it's a great place to live.
A wonderful suburb could not be happier with my living arrangement! Developing downtown will be the hot spot of the Main Line in the years to come!
