Radnor Township Reviews

36 reviews
All Categories
Radnor is a comfortable suburb, convenient to many amenities, job opportunities, transportation and the city of Philadelphia. While there are many nice people, there are also a lot of pretentious, provincial snobs, with not that much to be so snobby about. The local, basically volunteer, government is highly politicized, corrupt and rampant with cronyism. Some good restaurants, etc., but very expensive. You can get a decent education in their public schools, but true to their provincial nature, their high school sends way too many kids to Penn State when many of them could be better served by more creative options. No real "nightlife".

Radnor Township is located about 20 minutes outside of Philadelphia combining neighborhood living with wonderful schools and a quick commute to the city. Whether you are sitting outside on North Wayne Avenue having dinner or watching a football game at the high school, the thing you notice most is the wonderful sense of community here.
This area feels extremely safe and well-kept. There is no vandalism or graffiti and every house is tidy inside and out. There are barely any crimes around here and if there are, there is little to no chance that it involves violence or murder. Because I live by a park, I constantly see the police sitting around the park making sure everything is alright, which makes me feel extremely safe.
