Review Lower Merion Township
Lower Merion Township is made up of several suburbs just outside the city of Philadelphia. It is a beautiful area with lots of character: old stone colonial homes, winding rooms, streams and historical sights. The schools are excellent and several colleges and universities are located in Lower Merion: Villanova University, Haverford College, Bryn Mawr College, just to name a few. There are several town centers that offer all the conveniences: shopping, dining, groceries and more! Life is good in LMT!
We do not have enough well-priced, good restaurants in our area. We have too many asian and indian restaurants and would like more variety. There are some newer places which have recently opened (large mexican chain - yuck), but none of them are that good and the prices just keep getting higher and higher. What makes it worse: the food is just mediocre! You cannot take a family of 4 out for a sit-down meal with waiter service for under $60 and who wants to spend that kind of money for a random weeknight out. At this point, I'd rather cook.
A pretty nice atmosphere compared to the other more expensive, stuck-up neighborhoods nearby. Very nice location as it is directly beside the train station, makes commuting anywhere along regional rail (into Philadelphia) very easy. Additionally, it is situated only a 5 minute walk from the Ardmore shopping center, and directly beside another shopping square. This gives many easy choices for food, commerce, etc. Right across the street from walking/running trail at Haverford College, not far from many other primary schools, high schools and small colleges. Area is very up and coming, as well as close to more rapidly growing areas off the mainline in Havertown.
