Montco Township Makes Best Places List
Money Magazine has put one Montgomery County township on its list of the 100 best places to live. Abington checks in at number 29, down slightly from the 21st place it enjoyed in 2008, the last time it made the list. Horsham, which made 15th place in 2007, was missing because it failed to fit into this year’s population criteria. The magazine says Abington is “a family-oriented suburb with a Philadelphia attitude,” and residents who “tend to be rabid fans of Philly sports teams.” Amenities mentioned include the Keswick Theater, the Willow Grove Park Mall and an estimated 7,000 restaurants within 15 miles.
