I really enjoy living in the Bella Vista neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The neighborhood is extremely safe and extremely quiet. There are several good schools located in the neighborhood, such as, Andrew Jackson Elementary School, Christopher Columbus Charter School, and many others. The neighborhood is extremely family friendly. There are various delicious restaurants throughout the neighborhood, that offer food from countries all over the world. In addition, there are several places to buy groceries, such as Whole Foods Market, Sprouts, Acme, the Italian Market, and much more. This area offers anything you need. There are also several parks in the area, that provides a great place to picnic or walk your pets. There are also several very nice pools, gyms, and recreation centers in the area.
