You want a small town with a welcoming community, Oaklyn is it! Small downtown with a brewery and local eateries. Friendly, great school and close to Collingswood, Philadelphia and Haddonfield.

A very family orientated community where most residents seem to know one another. Police are always out and about patrolling and know a lot of residents by name. A hard working blue collar town where folks put pride into their homes. Centrally located.. a few minutes to Collingswood, 15 minutes to Philadelphia, 5 miles to all of the sports stadiums, about 10 miles to the airport, and less than an hour to the nearest beach. Definitely feel that Oaklyn is on the up and up with a few cute restaurants and its coveted brewery Tonewood.
Small town, safe to let your kids out to play, feels like everyone knows each other, great little shops and there’s even a bar and a brewery in town! There is always something going In town like fairs and food vender town dinner nights during the summer! It’s a great place to live and raise your kids! :)
