Three Philly Suburbs Among America’s Best Small Towns

NewsWorks reports:

Two Pennsylvania and one New Jersey suburb have been named in the “America’s 50 Best Small Towns” list compiled by CNN Money roundup, one of them even making the top 10.

West Goshen, in Chester County, was named the 10th-best small town to live in, with its “lush, suburban feel, quiet, tree-shaded residential areas, lovely parks, and a full slate of community activities.” Hillsborough, N.J., was named 17th, and Horsham, Pa. came in at 34th.

CNN’s take on West Goshen:

Looking for larger-scale entertainment? The King of Prussia Mall, America’s largest shopping center, is only 20 minutes away. Surrounding the town is store- and restaurant-packed West Chester, a hamlet that serves as the area’s unofficial downtown.

West Goshen also boasts an array of local employers, including Comcast and QVC, and is an easy commute to the economic hubs of Philadelphia and Wilmington, Del. If your heart’s set on moving into a brand-new house, keep in mind that some newer residential developments lack personality and are expensive compared with older homes.

It’s true. The King of Prussia Mall makes everything better.
