Just relocated a family from Florence to the Collegeville area. The area has a nice balance of new and classic homes, newer school facilities, and easy accessibility to parks, shopping, and the corporate centers in Great Valley, Collegeville, and King of Prussia. Commuting routes can be congested at rush hour, but where isn't it in the Northeast; however, if you seek access to regional rail for travel to downtown Philly, some locations are better than others. Also, some of the newer YMCA facilities service this broad area. If you'd like to discuss options, let me know. Good Hunting!
