Drexel Hill Reviews
I lived in DH from 6th grade(1996) on and off until 2012 or surrounding areas of UD township(Media, Springfield, Lansdowne, Aston, Newtown Square, and a few months in Darby, (lol). DH was in my opinion the best. I lived near the tressles and Kent Park and had a great upbringing. Laid back atmosphere and plenty to do. I've heard the schools have gone downhill, but I think that's everywhere now. The food and things to do around there, (convenience) is unparellel for the price that a lot of other major cities and suberbs cost. Plus the houses esp near City line and DHMS are spectacular!!!
Drexel Hill is a quiet town in Delaware County, PA. It's a great distance from Philadelphia if you want to visit occasionally and live relatively close in a suburb. However, throughout the decades taxes have skyrocketed, while wages remain low, infrastructure is subpar (below subpar in some areas), and quality of life is seemingly on the decline. It was a great place to grow up until around the 2000s.
I was born and raised in Drexel Hill. I lived down the street from a YMCA, within walking distance of my church, and a few blocks from a trolley line that could easily take me to a connecting hub for transportation to center city!
