Life in East Norriton has been pretty good. I enjoy the nice neighborhoods and proximity to commercial places such as Philadelphia or King of Prussia. I have really enjoyed my time in public schools in the area and am sad to see it coming to an end. The only drawback I have seen is the independence of everybody, people aren't exactly the most neighborly, but if that's alright with you then East Norriton is a great place to live.

This town is very safe and recommended for families. There is a good mix of diversity. All the stores, gyms, restaurants are within walking distance, which is usually hard to come by in a suburb. The 3 mega malls are within driving distance and there is easy access to the highways to the city.
East Norriton offers a an abundance of retail options, all within minutes of each other. There is a Weis, ShopRite, Walmart very close to each other alongside more than 15 fast food restaurants and numerous other stores, not to mention a $3 carwash. Although the school district and overall atmosphere has a decent reputation, I definitely feel safe here. I would watch out in the Norriton Square Shopping Center and Walmart parking lots through; it gets a bit hectic.
