What Is The Main Line?

The Main Line is a group of suburbs in the Philadelphia metro area located west of the city in Montgomery, Delaware, and Chester Counties. These suburbs are called the Main Line because they sprang up along the route of the historic Pennsylvania Railroad, which connected the towns. Residents of Main Line towns live a very high quality of life, as these are some of the wealthiest communities in the country. Many of the sprawling mansions and large homes that historically characterized the Main Line region still exist today, and are a lovely part of the Main Line landscape.

Looking for Philadelphia Real Estate? Try the Main Line!

If you're relocating to the Philadelphia area and prefer the suburbs to the city one of your first considerations should be the Main Line area. This affluent region of Eastern Pennsylvania offers easy access to the downtown area via road or rail, and is also close to major shopping centers, recreation, and cultural activities. The local school districts spend well above the state average expenditure per student, and at the same time keep the student to teacher ratio well under the state average. The area also features many private schools and prestigious universities including Villanova, Haverford College, and St. Joseph's University.

Big design ideas for small kitchen spaces

Bigger isn't always better in the real estate world, and what's more, it's not always possible.
