    Avondale

    • Suburb of Philadelphia, PA
    • 21 reviews
    Niche User:Living in this vicinity has allowed for a magnificent blending of cultures from around the world. The area of West Grove, Landenberg and Avondale create family oriented cultures, in which values and education are exemplified. I would absolutely choose to live here again, given the beautiful scenery around me, which shows the country side in may areas. However, there is a town-like feeling, with a plethora of small shops, food stores, and malls around which is extremely helpful. I hope to see more nature promoting events, including the emphasis for recycling and planting.
