West Goshen Township has a lush, suburban feel, with quiet, tree-shaded residential areas, lovely parks, and a full slate of community activities. West Goshen is part of the West Chester Area School District and is conveniently located to West Chester University.
Looking for larger-scale entertainment? The King of Prussia Mall, America’s largest shopping center, is only 20 minutes away. Surrounding the town is store- and restaurant-packed West Chester, a hamlet that serves as the area’s unofficial downtown.
West Goshen also boasts an array of local employers, including Comcast and QVC, and is an easy commute to the economic hubs of Philadelphia and Wilmington, Del. If your heart’s set on moving into a brand-new house, keep in mind that some newer residential developments lack personality and are expensive compared with older homes. –Susie Poppick
