Abington

Abington Township holds a top spot as one of the most desirable residential neighborhoods in the northeast Philadelphia suburbs. Abington serves as an excellent meld of shopping and employment opportunities, hosting one of the area's largest indoor-shopping venues, Willow Grove Park, as well as several of Montgomery County's largest employers.

Abington holds a moderately diverse racial mix of people, mostly consisting of single professionals and budding families. This has resulted in a major influx of businesses catering to these demographics, providing a balanced mix of industry and open terrain.
