If you’re looking for a community with a real town center where you can find independent stores and restaurants, art-house movies and live theater, all within a 35-minute train ride of central Philadelphia, come to Ambler.
Located 17 miles northwest of downtown Philly, Ambler is enjoying a revival as new businesses open up to complement established stores that have served the community for decades. Night-time visitors to Ambler’s tree-lined main street can now visit an Irish pub – complete with live Celtic music – have dinner at a Mexican restaurant, or watch top-class cinema at the nonprofit, and recently renovated Ambler Theater.
And for those thinking of putting down roots in Ambler, the town is served by the highly-rated Wissahickon and Upper Dublin School districts, as well as the Ambler campus of Temple University. The Wissahickon Creek flows nearby, offering access to the natural beauty of the Wissahickon Valley.
