Pennsylvania Neighborhood Guide

Welcome To Main Line, Philadelphia’s Favorite Suburbs

The origins of the Main Line in Philadelphia can be traced back to the 19th century. While a lot has changed since then, one major aspect has not; the Main Line is still one of Pennsylvania's finest areas to live. In fact, in the 20th century, it was common for wealthy families to have two homes: one in Philadelphia and one in Main Line’s towns, using the “main line” to travel back and forth.

About Main Line

If you’ve ever watched the 1940 movie “The Philadelphia Story” you’d have a good idea of what life in Main Line was like back then. But much has changed since. Some parts of the Main Line still remain bastions of “old money” with gorgeous, impressive historic stone estates. However, many Main Line areas have diversified tremendously with young professionals, millennials, and young families flocking to towns like Bryn Mawr for its entertainment districts, nightlife, and art scenes.

Where is Philadelphia’s Main Line?

When we talk about Main Line neighborhoods, we are usually referring to the western suburbs of Philadelphia along Lancaster Avenue (US Route 30) and the former main line of the Pennsylvania Railroad, extending from the city limits to Bryn Mawr and ultimately Paoli.
