Great area! Very family friendly and an affordable place to live. I have lived here my entire life and have never felt unsafe. The nightlife scene is below average, as this is more of a family-oriented area, but Ambler, Doylestown, and the great city of Philadelphia are all close by. I would recommend living in North Wales!

I've lived in various places in the United States and even in Germany, but North Wales has probably been the most diverse and welcoming community thus far. I think all of the school districts in this area are well-resourced and put the students first, and although there isn't too much to do in the area, North Wales is fairly close to many other cities and towns.
This place is amazing! Excellent location and so many things to do! Small, so its not huge, but its a great place to be raised.
