Kevin, as you have a daughter, you should research schools districts. Unlike England, where you may send her to a private school, that is not entirely necessary, although some people do. We settled on the Main Line, an area to the North West of Philadelphia, there are many good public schools in this area. You can get information on schools on my website at this link. By law agents cannot steer you to an area, we can give you link to check this information, but cannot give you our opinion on a school district. Unlike England, walking with a dog generally requires the dog to be on a leash and you cannot walk across private land. In our area, which feels very similar to parts of England, like Beaconsfield and the Cotswolds with winding roads etc. There of course has been lots of development over the years so it is more built up, but there are some great parks where you can walk, cycle, jog etc. I would say work out which school districts you might want to be in, look at some homes online and then when you are out here we can arrange a tour of the area. Homes here again are very different to English homes, most being timber frame construction, not brick or stone built, they have facings of stone and brick but it is not like an English house, but that is also part of the fun of being somewhere different. There are some old farmhouses, old being from the 18-1900's, lots of interesting towns, with great restaurants, coffee shops, bars, breweries etc.
