Ardmore

Main Line Feel; Mainstream Appeal

Ardmore was named after its train stop on its Main Line commuter connection with Philadelphia. The main street is Lancaster Avenue; its specialty shops and quirky retailers may seem at odds with the area's perceived upper-crustiness, but in reality, the neighborhood has been skewing younger and hipper for several decades.


Top 10 Things to Do in Ardmore:

ChanticleerChanticleer Estate and Gardens takes its name from the Middle English translation of the word rooster, an apt description because the meticulously tended gardens are clearly something to crow about.

Wynnewood Lanes has been a family-friendly destination since its opening in 1962; the Rock ‘n' Bowl nights are particularly cool.

Avalon Limousines will whisk you around the Main Line - or elsewhere - in style. No better way to Let Freedom Reign than by leaving the driving to a pro.

The Beer Shoppe is the friendly neighborhood bar that everyone flocks to. A night of dinner, drinks and a televised game to cheer through can cost less than ten bucks.

Harusame draws sushi aficionados from all over the Main Line. The other entrees are equally as praiseworthy: teriyaki, hibachi, soba, for example. Rezzies are recommended.

Suburban SquareSuburban Square has distinguished itself for decades as an open-air shopping experience that is concurrently upscale and friendly.

• The Ardmore Farmers Market speeds produce, meats, cheeses, and even flowers from outlying Lancaster County and spreads these delights before shoppers in an impressive array.

• The Philadelphia Skating Club has open-ice opportunities year round and can teach you the finer points of Theater on Ice, which blends skating with dance.

Merritt Gallery & Renaissance Fine Arts has a stunning array of prints for sale and a number of meet-the-artist events; it houses the largest collection of art in the Mid-Atlantic region.

The Historic Waynesborough House was once the home of Revolutionary General Anthony Wayne, one of the greatest fighting generals in American history.
