Our home is close to many universities (U of PA, Saint Joseph's, Bryn Mawr, Villanova, etc.), and it takes only 20 minutes to get to center city Philadelphia (accessible also by train at walking distance from the house). Philadelphia is the cradle of US history, and offers a wide range of cultural activities.
Our home is also 1 hour away from Lancaster (Amish County), 2 hours from New York City, 2.5 from Washington D.C., 1.5 from New Jersey shore (Atlantic City and other shore points)...
