Moving in, Collegeville was a very quiet place to live. Recent construction brings in noises that I missed while living elsewhere. Although home construction is located throughout, when I first moved in there was no close shopping center. Now there is one right down the street and up the road from my house; just a few minutes away! The environment is clean and there is less to worry about.

We have a lovely community with quaint shops and restaurants, very involved citizens who volunteer for frequent events, and hundreds of programs developed for children. There are a vast array of churches but a very accepting mentality of people of all religions and backgrounds. Recent renovations of Royersford's main borough has left it looking even more darling, and the beautiful trails, forested areas, and small stretches of farmland surrounding the town only add to the pleasing aesthetic. Bring your children here to thrive in a flourishing educational system and community, enjoy the scenic work commute to the larger urbanized areas/cities 20-40 min away from the safety of a beautiful small town, and retire here where everyone is friendly, everything you need is easy to access, and finances are manageable.
Not many small businesses, but the ones we have are great! Many restaurants are family-owned and they have amazing food and customer service. There are many larger corporations in the area, but the small businesses are awesome.
