^^^ Sure...us in about three weeks. We'll be there for about a day-and-a-half in September (part of a larger road trip holiday). :)

Planning to move to the Mechanicsburg, Pa, area here at the beginning of next year if the situation doesn't change. Should be arriving in early January.

I know Mechanicsburg! It is right next to Harrisburg, but a good hour and 40 minutes from me. Are you sure you don't want to move to Philadelphia suburbs? :mrgreen:

We're actually planning a move to Philly in the next five years. We've visited several times (used to live in Dover, DE) and love it.

How's the CF life there? Any restaurants banning kids? What's your take on living there? Everyone I ask on other forums says the same thing, "The schools are a disaster here." I always respond with, "Not my primary concern.", and then the conversation dies off.

Do you want to live in Philly itself or in the burbs?
Philly's center, especially the area around Rittenhouse square are really nice. The rent is really cheap compared with other major cities: Boston and NYC. I'd live there myself but no condo will let me in with my ZOO lol). Plus I am really bad with parallel parking. :mrgreen:
Yes, the inner city schools are crap, but why would you care? Public transportation is not that great. I would get a car unless you don't plan on leaving the downtown area at all.
Since I spend most of my time in the burbs, I have yet to meet a CF person :shock: BUT I knew a CF person who used to live in Philly, but moved out of state.

We want to be either downtown, like City Center or Old City or Rittenhouse, although we'd consider a place that's diverse. We like diversity. We don't like family-friendly! We like having a wide range of restaurants and ethnic grocery stores, that kind of thing, so a neighborhood with those features would be doable.

Philly has all that and some. I would choose center city as I feel it offers more diversity and is less baby centered. People with kids tend to move to suburbs. You should be fine in the city!

I'm about 20 minutes south of Easton, along the Delaware river. Upper Black Eddy.
