A Ziptrip to Ardmore

Experience some of the best shopping, dining and nightlife on the Main Line

As the largest and most diverse town on the ritzy Main Line stretch of suburbs, Ardmore has a distinctly double character: It’s residential yet urban, independent yet central, historic yet forward-facing. Even the community itself straddles two counties (Ardmore is seated in Montgomery, while South Ardmore is in Delaware). Add to that some of the area’s best shopping, dining and nightlife, and visiting Ardmore is a multidimensional experience. And with the town just 30 minutes outside Center City Philadelphia, it’s perfect for a quick day trip beyond the city’s limits.
