Ambler is a great little town! The people are friendly, there are great restaurants and community activities, the accessibility of public transportation is very good, and there is a strong community feel in Ambler.

Ambler is a nice little diverse town. There is mixture of lower, upper, and middle class families living here. There are lots of small businesses that have been here for a long time, on top of small businesses that are just moving in. The town seems like it's always changing with new and old people moving in and out and businesses being shut down, then renewed. There is a lot of undercover drug use and under age drinking but the violence rate is not high in this town as far as i have witnessed.

Ambler is awesome. It isa very friendly community. It is quaint and charming. The main street revels Chestnut Hill. A real hometown appeal. The train station is convenient to get to Philadelphia. Dive less than a mile out of town and you run into horse farms. The best of all worlds.
