In Hatfield, there is not much. We have a few retail stores, salons, and grocery stores. There is mainly restaurants here since we are right off the turnpike, but not much to do. However, we do have the best ice cream and waterice at Mom's Waterice. It is fantastic! Started by the Kulik family, they are extremely family oriented and keep prices low, as a lot of children go there. The portions are huge, so you definitely get what you paid for! Also, Hatfield Pizza is another good place to eat. They are so friendly and their food is delicious! They would often donate food to my Girl Scout Troop or to the local middle school's musicals. Other than those few places, we have a Kohl's and Famous Footwear, and that is just about it besides some hotels, again since we are right off the turnpike, and mainly housing.

Hatfield is a small, quiet little town outside of Philly. We don't have much to do right in Hatfield besides restaurants, but there are towns no more than 5-10 minutes away that have plenty to do. Close to Philly so there is a short commute for work or to get to sporting events or concerts. The town itself if very community based and a good area to live in. Very low crime rates and plenty of parks and the local pool. North Penn School District had prepared me extremely well for college.
Hatfield is a very small, and amazing community with wonderful shops, activites, and schools. I would like to see a few more community events throughout the town.
