Doylestown has been a wonderful town to grow up in! A little over 30 mins from Philadelphia, Doylestown has easy access to the city but also offers a tight knit community feel. The own is perfect for getting outside and being active; there is plenty of room for biking, walking, visiting the local pool, and fishing at the nearby lake. Doylestown is full of local businesses and other stores such as Starbucks and playa bowls; this creates a perfect mix between small independent owned stores and the essentials. This area is full of new families of all shapes and offers opportunities for great education.

I feel very lucky to live in such a beautiful and friendly town. I’ve lived in several different countries and in many beautiful areas and Doylestown is somewhere I could see myself settling permanently. Lots of museums, walkable downtown and even a castle! It’s a quite European lifestyle being able to walk to the supermarket, stroll to see a movie or to go out for dinner. I very highly recommend it.
Doylestown is a cute town with great food and coffee shops! There are a few boutiques and bookshops that are popular with the people who live here. Lots of business offices as well! The parks here are nice with playgrounds for the younger kids. There’s also a pretty big library with lots of movies and books on anything you could possibly want! There used to be First Friday every month, but for some reason the town discontinued it a few years ago. Overall Doylestown is a very nice and friendly town. I enjoy living here and walking around the heart of town, especially in the summer.
