Fourteen Montgomery County towns are among the fifty best places to live in Pennsylvania, according to a new ranking by Niche. I mean, of course, the Montco Today Editor lives in Upper Providence Township!
Niche based its ranking on data from U.S. Census Bureau, FBI, Bureau of Labor Statistics, and the Centers for Disease Control along with user reviews.
Among the key factors that were considered are the quality of local schools, cost of living, crime rates, employment statistics, and access to amenities.
