We are looking to move from outside of Woodstock, NY (two girls 4 & 2) to outside of Philidelphia. Curious about the better school districts and like minded communities? We have heard the Lower Merion school district is great and also good things about Chesnut Hill? Any advice would be greatly apprciated!
Great towns to live in outside of Philidelphia?
West Mt. Airy is cute and has a co-op, a few alternative medicine/yoga offices, etc. But it's still part of Philly, so if you live there you pay Philly taxes. Grr. I nannied in Narberth (on the mainline, very easy to zip into the city on the train) and it is small but a great community feel. There is an established group of moms as well as a womens group and everything is walkable within the borough. If you're super crunchy, you might stand out a bit but everyone seems so welcoming and inclusive that I'm not sure it'd matter much. Close to a Trader Joe's and Whole Foods, as well as many Main Line options for alt medicine and chiropractic. It's Lower Merion School District, too :)
