Countryside Neighborhoods

Greater Philadelphia
at its Most Serene 


It doesn’t take much time in Greater Philadelphia’s Countryside neighborhoods to realize why New Jersey is nicknamed the Garden State and the Philadelphia region America’s Garden Capital. Best characterized by its picturesque landscape and historic, close-knit communities, this five-neighborhood region is an escape from city living to a quieter, more serene lifestyle. And, with local festivals — like Harleysville’s Heckler’s and Medford’s Dicken’s Festival — and spectacular architecture — from rustic log cabins to Victorian castles — these neighborhoods are cultural lighthouses in a sea of gentle, rolling hills.


Each of Greater Philadelphia’s neighborhoods have their own history, culture, and flavor. Explore the many diverse places that make up this region below.
