Depending on whom you ask, Philadelphia’s Main Line always includes Ardmore, Bala Cynwyd, Bryn Mawr, Gladwyne, Haverford, Merion, Narberth, Penn Valley and Wynnewood. Some people also consider towns a little further west (Villanova, Wayne, Devon, Berwyn, Paoli and Malvern) as part of the Main Line,, or the Philadelphia suburbs. I’ll compromise, concentrating on the eastern portion as far as Wayne, with just a few words about the western end, primarily because having been born and raised on the eastern Main Line and raising my own kids here, the bulk of my expertise is in this area. I know the neighborhoods, the schools, the shopping areas, the historically significant (or sometimes just quirky and interesting) places and buildings, the shortcuts (you’ll need to know these) and the important places to know about that guide books would never mention. Think of me as your resource for whatever you’re trying to find in the Philadelphia suburbs, from a reliable plumber to where to get your dog groomed.
