Current Resident: Ardmore, PA is a great city part of the Main Line. I enjoy the many restaurants and stores nearby and the Paoli Thorndale line, which easily takes you to Philadelphia. Where I live, all the restaurants and stores are easily walkable, which is why I moved to Ardmore. The schools are also excellent.
My only concern is with the amount of development currently going on. I worry it will push away affordable housing for many.

Current Resident: I’ve lived here for 20 years. Grew up here and have watched Grandview evolve from a sleepy suberb to a booming millennial mecca in Columbus. It really is the perfect location with its close proximity to downtown and the university. It’s extremely safe and has great schools. The downside to its growing popularity is 1. It’s now extremely expensive and 2. all the new construction is causing the town to lose some of its charm.

- Suburb of Chicago, IL
Current Resident: This town captures it all! They have excellent public and private schools for families. There is a very small and quaint downtown area that has several restaurants and wine bars. A good old fashioned market with a butcher/deli, fruit store, oberweiss, Starbucks and many small businesses owned by our very own residents! The town resembles a modern day "Maybury" and yes almost everyone knows each other! I've Iived here for the past 12 years, since my son turned 5 and could start going to school and have loved every minute of it!

Current Resident: Oak Park is in transition. New downtown high rises are attracting a young, affluent, well educated clientele due to convenient transportation into Chicago. Meanwhile many older, established residents continue to improve/upgrade residential properties easily maintaining the area's real estate values. The downside to this (hence 4 star not 5) are sky high real estate taxes which can be problematical for any older resident on a fixed income. Services, are commensurate with the taxes paid.
Super schools, world-class architecture, great transportation options, spectacular parks and recreational facilities, broad ethnic and religious diversity, great shopping with some dandy family owned businesses, excellent healthcare /hospitals, all the good. The bad is more congestion, sometimes way to liberal government and, unfortunately, a rising crime rate due to proximity to a tough area of Chicago.

Current Resident: Berkeley is a wonderful city full of an interesting, open-minded and intelligent group of people. The city is very culturally diverse and open to accepting anyone from anywhere. The food scene is to die for and if organically grown is what you live by, look no further than Berkeley grocery stores, farmers markets and more. One small down side would be the lack of club life (for the younger folks), there are however many perfectly adequate bars as well a little college student scene on Telegraph Avenue. Overall, I highly recommend living here or going to school here if accepted!

- Neighborhood in Seattle, WA
Visitor: This location is great for those who work downtown and don't want a long commute. It is close to everything; restaurants, stores, downtown on Seattle waterfront. Not exactly a family neighborhood, more for career oriented singles or couples. Some street noises but nothing too bad.

- Suburb of Dallas, TX
Current Resident: I think Coppell is a very nice place. There are very nice houses, the schools have good reputation, and there are a lot of places to hang out with your family.
I'm not so sure if i would say affordable, since it is a place where more financially stable are meant to live in, so for people that do not have a career, it is a little tough to keep up with rent.
There are a lot of restaurants! Families can go out and enjoy an evening together. They can go to the awesome public library, the beautiful parks, or even attend the seasonal softball games for little girl and boys.
There is a down side to this city. Because rich and poor people live here, there is a separation between the two classes. This happens mostly in school, but luckily, teacher are pretty good at handling these type of situations.

Current Resident: Upper Arlington is a small and safe town that is a suburb of Columbus, OH. It has given me an extraordinary base of education and core values that are second to none. Upper Arlington High School has a vast variety of opportunities to explore from varsity athletics, shop classes, school magazine/yearbooks, to a world-class concert orchestra and drama club. All of these opportunities have been a starting point for notable alumni Beverly D'Angelo – Actress, George Smoot - Nobel Prize Winner, Erin Moriarty - News correspondent for 48 Hours, and all-time great golfer Jack Nicklaus. Upper Arlington is a town that gives you opportunities to succeed in any path you choose.

Current Resident: We've lived in Long Grove for 10+ years and love it. The large lots, forest and great conservation areas make it feel so private and pastoral, yet it's close to everything with good train service into the city on two different lines. And the best high school in the state (Adlai Stevenson) in my opinion! Downtown LG (meaning the village proper) took a hit in the recession but it is coming back with several new restaurants and businesses now open. Still very atmospheric and New-Englandy.

Current Resident: Falcon Heights is a cozy small-town feel in between the two big cities. With that warm neighborhood allure, it still comes with everything you need from shops to restaurants! I have lived from city-to-city between Minneapolis and Saint Paul, and Falcon Heights has been for sure my favorite. I plan to stay here for a long while.

Current Resident: Brookline is a great place for young professionals to live! Located within a mile of Boston, Brookline is close enough to the city that those who are interested can easily amerce themselves in city life. Alternatively, Brookline is far enough away from the city that residents aren't in the hustle in bustle of late night bars, traffic or college students. Brookline is home to many delicious restaurants and has a handful of tasteful bars as well.

Current Resident: Powell is a very close knit community. Many of the people that live here do so because of the schools in Olentangy, which are all very good. The concept of the "Powell Bubble" is very prevalent and it is very closed off to anything that happens outside of it. The families tend to have money and the kids are okay enough, albeit stuck up a little. The downtown area and the small events, as well as some of the local and franchising businesses, make it functional and at home. However after living here for 11 years it has started to get very dull. It is very safe and a great place to raise your kids, which is the main reason why so many families live here.

Current Resident: Great schools, neighborhoods and close to everything. Houses keep going up in value, as neighborhoods have beautiful curb appeal and people keep their property greatly maintained. However..alot of personality TYPE A's in Leawood, so alot of very perfectionist neighbors that can drive some people crazy! I.e..perfect lawns, perfect gardens, perfect etc. Not always fun living next to that...

Current Resident: The Greatwood community engages neighbors as if they are an extension of a tightly knit family. I grew up in the subdivision since I was six attending Bess Campbell Elementary School, one of the two primary schools within the area. The families involved in creating the environment where the children grew up has fostered a sense of belonging, diversity, and sportsmanship that have sculpted the safe, hospitable, and active foreground for generations to cherish. As I grew up in Greatwood, the area has become even more charming. More diverse retail units opened to invite people to explore the mix of cultures within the community, a major hospital (Memorial Hermann) arrived to provide ease of patient care, and it even brought Buccee's over from the more southwest fringe of Houston which I truly love! Over the years, Greatwood has become home to another level: one where you settle down and enjoy the serenity of fresh air and free spirit.
