Grew up in Havertown and bought here as an adult. Great family neighborhood! The schools here are amazing. I have a child at Manoa Elementary and three children in the Haverford Middle School. I would not choose to live anywhere else. I feel safe in Havertown. My children are able play outside, explore nature trails, visit many local parks, and go ice skating at the local skatium.

Great community, everyone is very welcoming and the neighborhoods are very family oriented. I have grown up in the town and have loved every minute of it!
It's, for the most part, a safe place to live. It's near Philadelphia so it's not too far of a ride to go into the city for a day trip of any sort. The town itself, though, is not very exciting or unique. They have a good school but that doesn't make up for a lot of other things. Our town is not very diverse at all, especially not compared to the neighboring Upper Darby. There also isn't a very exciting walking area in the town. There isn't really a "downtown" area, it's all just nail salons and Irish pubs. It's not very exciting for a night, or day, out on the town.
