Situated northwest of Philadelphia, Montgomery County boasts a strong economy, a strategic location, and remarkable diversity. Valley Forge National Historical Park, the nation’s largest mall, thousands of acres of farmlands and woodlands, miles of scenic rivers, and dozens of corporate office parks are a few elements in the colorful mosaic of this vibrant region.

Healthcare institutions within the county range from local medical centers to the expansive facilities of regional hospitals like Abington Memorial. In addition to an excellent physician-per-person ratio, many of the county’s fully accredited, comprehensive institutions like Lankenau Hospital have affiliations with prestigious medical training schools, ensuring the very latest in technological breakthroughs, research, and treatment. Offering a highly trained professional staff, Montgomery County hospitals feature a wide range of diagnostic and rehabilitative services, state-of-the-art medical/surgical equipment, advanced acute-care facilities, modern birthing centers, and cost-effective programs that cover every aspect of healthcare.

Providing excellence in public education, Montgomery County’s school districts rank among Pennsylvania’s finest. Award-winning public schools combine with a wide range of opportunities for private instruction and parochial-school options. Honors and advanced-placement programs, special needs programs, the latest in classroom technology, dedicated staff members, and strong parent involvement consistently produce high SAT performance scores and an exceptional percentage of college-bound seniors. Private schools on every level expand the options for alternative learning and social environments in parochial and independent schools.

Montgomery residents have an abundance of choices for continuing education, from vocational/technical training and adult education classes to four-year degrees and beyond. In addition to the institutions of higher education within Montgomery County, the Delaware Valley as a region is home to some of the nation’s most prestigious colleges and universities. The expanded facilities of the University of Pennsylvania combine with those offered in such famous schools as Villanova University, Rosemont College, and Bryn Mawr to the west.


Montgomery County offers suburban comfort with a touch of class. Spacious homes, some of which date back almost three centuries, are surrounded by meticulously manicured and generous lots. New subdivisions blend with a hometown atmosphere in most communities, while the smaller villages and rural areas retain all of the charm of quiet, tree-lined neighborhoods, shaded streets, and narrow country lanes of another era.

Regardless of where you settle in Montgomery County, a municipal park will only be minutes from home. Weekends find many residents in the national or state parklands, enjoying a complete range of outdoor activities. Winter sports include ice-fishing, sledding, cross-country and downhill skiing, and ice-skating. During the warmer summer months, residents enjoy horseback riding, hiking, bird-watching, nature study, birding, boating, fishing, tennis, swimming, team sports, or golfing on public and private courses. Serious athletes can join casual bicycle riders along the Schuylkill Bike Trail, 22 miles of scenic beauty that winds along the river bank.

Few locations can rival Montgomery County for the quality and sheer volume of art galleries, museums, and historical homes or sites. Unique venues feature such wonders as the world’s largest privately owned collection of stained glass housed in the Gothic-style Bryn Athyn Cathedral, or the impressive collections found in the Streitwieser Historical Trumpet Museum.

Performing arts in Montgomery County begin on the community level, with an abundance of dinner theaters, musical and arts festivals, hands-on craft shows, and year-round celebrations. A myriad of living history sites and elaborate re-enactments allow residents to take a step back in time, experiencing life in Pennsylvania more than 200 years ago. Off-Broadway plays abound and top performers pack the houses at popular facilities such as the Hedgerow Theatre and the Media Theatre for the Performing Arts, while comedy clubs blend with the sights and sounds of headline musical performers at a wide variety of exciting night spots.

Aficionados of shopping can explore thousands of stores, shops, markets, antique dealers, malls, craft centers, and specialty boutiques. Spend the entire day at the East Coast’s largest enclosed mall at King of Prussia or browse through the quaint shops in Skippack Village. Sophisticated styles await shoppers along the Main Line’s prestigious boutiques, while bargain-hunters may prefer to seek out one of the many factory outlets or take a stroll through Franklin Mills.

Dining options in Montgomery are equally varied, from casual and family fare to gourmet meals by candlelight. World-class international cuisine, ethnic variety, and local flavors from Pennsylvania Dutch Shoo-Fly Pie to Philly Cheesesteaks are all available. From Lower Moreland to Marlborough and along the entire Main Line, Montgomery County has every ingredient for the “good life.”
