Haverford, PA

Today, Haverford is most notable for being the site of Haverford College. The town is connected to central Philadelphia by the Paoli/Thorndale Line commuter rail system and Norristown High Speed Line. Beautiful estate homes define this old-school suburban enclave, as do the Merion Golf Club and Merion Cricket Club, both bastions of Main Line tradition. Founded in 1865, the latter offers squash, lawn tennis and (of course) cricket to its elite membership. Merion Gold Club, meanwhile, has hosted five U.S. Open tournaments. At Haverford Square, posh boutiques intermingle with popular eateries.
