Things to Do in 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.
