The borough of Malvern is an up and coming town with cute shops and a few good restaurants. Definitely not as developed as some other suburbs (think Wayne, Ardmore, Bryn Mawr) but a great community nonetheless. Good schools in the area whether you go public or private. Outside of the borough is a mix of developments, farm area, and light industrial zoning but with more development there are now more restaurants as well. Has everything you need with a Wegmans and Target right next to each other.

My experience with Malvern has been full of different feelings. Overall, Malvern is an amazing town full of beautiful nature aspects to the immense amount of restaurants. But, I believe the area must be more diverse. There are many differences between the residents of Malvern that must be sorted out, for they are unnecessary. But, overall, it is a beautiful area to live in.
Malvern is an amazing town. With its up-and-coming downtown area, the town is sure to become even greater in the coming years!
