Current Resident: Morrisville is very clean and fresh-looking! It's homey and very diverse. I have recently moved here for work and it was very easy to find my current job. Many people commute to Raleigh, Durham, or Chapel Hill to work as well. I like how Morrisville is right in the middle of the triangle, so everything is in easy access! Morrisville offers many wonderful places to eat as well, and a lot of them are privately owned so you get authentic meals. If you are more interested in night life, downtown Raleigh is just down the road, and makes for an easy way to go out with your friends.

Current Resident: My Stone Ridge experience has been very good so far. They take safety very seriously and put a good amount of signs up warning to slow down when the area they are driving through has kids. Stone Ridge has excellent public schools with teachers who care a lot about the students and how they develop. Stone ridge also has a great diversity of the residents that live here. If I were to change anything about Stone Ridge it would be the nightlife and the healthy living. At night there isn't much to do in the community, however in nearby communities there are plenty of nightlife activities. Finally in Stone Ridge although there are trails and gyms to use but I would add more healthy eating options.

Current Resident: Swarthmore offers a surfeit of of opportunities for young families. You have access to some of the highest quality public education in the area, you are a 30 minute train ride into the city of Philadelphia, and are footsteps away from the breathtaking campus of Swarthmore College. There are very few restaurants and not many activities in terms of nightlife. However, a quick trip into the neighboring Media or the city, and this solves the problem. There are cute cafes and little shops to explore, along with many markets on weekends. There is definitely a lack of diversity and the houses aren't cheap, nor are the property taxes. However, the old houses are beautiful.

Current Resident: I've lived in Berwyn my whole live, as did my mother, father, and their parents. The community is amazing and unlike anything I've seen - everyone is so welcoming and warm, they all want to be inclusive! The special events throughout the year make the town especially unique - the Turkey Raffle, the Tree Lighting, the Fourth of July parade, they all bring a close-knit community even closer. No matter where life takes me, I hope to always end up back in Berwyn.

Current Resident: Madeira is a great small town for every type of life style. The school system there is phenomenal from K-12 with many students going on to attend prestigious universities. This does make the school very hyper competitive though which can be hard for some students. There are also a variety of activities in the summer for families like free summer concerts, Shakespeare in the park, and the wiffle ball league. There is also a great sense of community with everyone in the town. Everyone comes out for the football games on Friday nights in the falls and is always there to help each other in their time of need. Overall, Madeira is a great small town to live in.

Current Resident: I have now lived in Arlington for 12 years. Their public schools and education system are wonderful, there are eco-friendly and healthy options for those living in the community. It is also very diverse! I would recommend more affordable options for its residents, there is a big population in Arlington that are underserved/in poverty.

Current Resident: I have called Sugar Land home for 16 years! The town itself has undergone a lot of growth over the years. Personally, I think the community has improved. There are a variety of diverse restaurants, Town Centre does a wonderful job with holiday and extracurricular celebrations, and the Fort Bend County police department are very accessible to contact and are kind. As the city grows, more popular stores, restaurants, and gyms pop up which make them more accessible.

Current Resident: Short Pump is friendly and a beautiful area to live in. It’s a peaceful and safe town to start a family and make friends. There are great quality schools from elementary to high schools. In addition, Short Pump is a lively community filled with a mixture of enjoyable activities, distinguished restaurants, and well-known stores. Most, if not all, neighborhoods are very family-friendly and have extremely low crime rates. If I had to name one flaw of the town it would be the lack of diversity; its, not the best place for meeting a variety of people and witnessing different aspects of life. However, Richmond City is only about a 20-minute drive from Short Pump, and the city is a growing area with an abundance of diversity. Overall, I enjoy living in Short Pump and there is never a dull moment.

Current Resident: Jericho has been a very nice experience. I have always lived in the city, and moved from a city to the next for the past seventeen years of my life. I have lived in Tokyo, Shanghai, and New York City. Although Jericho is relatively close to the city, I was surprised by a lot of the aspects of life here, pleasantly. I love how close I am to the neighbors. How I know exactly who are my classmates in class. I love how I know most of the people in my school. How everyone knows who I am too. Just the welcoming and warming feeling of this town has grown on me. I think anyone who will come here in the future will enjoy being here.

Current Resident: This is a wonderful community to live in! The streets are walk-able and everyone is so friendly. I have never felt unsafe or out of place. The town is very liberal and accepting, but there is not that much diversity. Public transportation is wonderful considering the small size of the city. Getting to downtown Pittsburgh is very very easy as there are buses frequently as well as the trolley.

The eco-friendly transportation is remarkable - and it's right on the beach. The neighborhood is cordial and helpful, full of art and music, and the FOOD IS ASTONISHING. The best bakery is Sweet Lady Jane.

It’s a wonderful, walkable, very friendly neighborly, and accessible with top-notch schools with high scores and small class sizes. Real estate is hot for all stages of life - young families, professionals, retirees. And you can get to the best St. Louis has to offer in 10-15 minutes. Our family is so happy here.

Current Resident: As a teenager growing up in Buffalo Grove, the majority of my plans with friends involve eating out with friends at one of the numerous restaurants around the area. There are so many amazing options for food in and around Buffalo Grove that include cuisine from almost anything you could think of. In the summer, I bike ride constantly around the area, and I never feel worried about my safety in Buffalo Grove. In order to explore some activities beyond food and dessert, you may need to venture into nearby suburbs. However, you don't need to travel far to experience pedal boating at Independence Grove, indoor skydiving and outlet malls at Rosemont, and other awesome options to do with friends or family. I've been lucky to attend Stevenson High School, which has given me the ability to meet so many people in a diverse atmosphere. Through my AP classes and the rigor of the school, I know I will be prepare to take on college and beyond. Happy to grow up here!
