What suburbs would you move to?

Parents who consider leaving the city for better schools have lots of suburban options. Or do they?

What suburbs would you move to?

So it turns out I'm not the only one a little creeped out by the thought of living in New Jersey. Len Lipkin's take on Jersey's mall culture and its implications for parents and children definitely resonated with me.

It also got me thinking about why parents who talk about leaving Philadelphia for the suburbs seem to mention a handful of places - Lower Merion, Narberth, Elkins Park, maybe Jenkintown at the outside. In New Jersey, it seems like the world lives in Haddonfield.

There must be other options out there. It was only through doing a story about parents' school choices that I learned that Wallingford has good schools and is convenient to the city.

What else is out there? If you are thinking about moving, where to? And why?
