Editor’s note: No surprise that the future tourism mecca of Western Montgomery County is missing from the list. I guess mini-golf, carousels and train rides aren’t enough to propel a crime infested borough to the top of any great places to live list. Not sure why the cart is always put before the horse.
Real estate website Movoto.com has compiled a list of the 10 best Philly suburbs.
With nine towns in Pennsylvania and one in New Jersey, the site ranked these towns based on many factors such as amenities per capita, standard of living, crime rate, and average commute time to Philly.
Coming in at number one is Devon, which the site says has the highest graduation rate, a median income of more than $142,000 per year, and is the “safest place for miles near Philadelphia.”
Six towns in Montgomery County made the list, while the rest were in Chester, Delaware and Camden counties.
