Main Line Parent 2023 Moving to the Main Line Guide

Your guide to settling down around the Main Line!

Moving to a new area can feel like a BIG leap. Sometimes it is a move you need, a move you want, or a move that simply must take place. Regardless of the circumstances, familiarizing yourself with a new area and community can be overwhelming. Especially with kids in the picture.

Let the Main Line Parent Community help you find your way with our new Moving to the Main Line Guide! This guide is an incredible resource for families to connect with each other and get to know the best our area has to offer. Know someone who is house hunting in our area? Share this page with them!

Main Line Parent is published by a team of local women to connect families raising their kids around the Main Line and Philly’s Western Subsurbs with resources, events, and each other. It all started with our vibrant Main Line Parent Community Facebook Group dedicated to Building Community!
