We live in the county seat of Chester County which is the fastest growth area in PA. Very Convenient to many leisure options: beach, mountains, large bays for boating, city life(Philly, New York, Baltimore & Washington DC). Also many local outdoor activities on weekends. This provides many diverse business opportunities both large and small.

The local businesses in the general vicinity are pretty much always thriving. There are some specific locations that struggle to keep the same store open for long, but if you ever need something you rarely have to drive more than 20 minutes to find it for a fair price. There are a couple of malls, but those are mainly the chain stores. The "downtown" area has pretty cute boutique shops that are a lot of fun to frequent if you want to window shop or actually buy things. Overall, I have nothing to complain about. The only issue is that you do pretty much need a car to move around. Some places are too far to walk, and if someone was coming from the city, this might be a difficult transition.
Most local establishments have their special dishes. Very little nightlife unless you go to West Chester for the young and later night group. This is a college town also being the home of West Chester University and offers a wide variety of bars. The university has about a student population of about 15,000 to 18,000.

The small establishments draw the locals however there seems to be a transformation of restaurant growth from Delaware County local establishments into our area.
