Located 10 miles west of Philadelphia, Swarthmore, Pennsylvania is a charming small town brought to life by the equally small but swanky Swarthmore College. Despite the small size, Swarthmore has a variety of activities to enjoy year-round, including the Lang Performing Arts Center, the Saturday farmers’ market, six beautiful parks, and The Ogden House. When you need to experience the big city, a short-drive to Philadelphia quenches your desires. Restaurants are plentiful in Swarthmore, but the true gems are in the big city. The Fairview neighborhood features upscale, yet still moderately priced, homes, typically offering 2 to 4 bedrooms. The Borough Center is also a popular neighborhood for those who want to retire in Swarthmore.
