Blue Bell is a charming suburb outside the bustling city of Philadelphia. Ranked 14th on Money magazine’s 2005 list of the "100 Best Places to Live in the United States,” it is a highly-regarded and in-demand community. The residential and suburban area has much to offer young families, including lush parks, wholesome community events, and welcoming restaurants. The award-winning school district and convenient public transportation access is the cherry on top.
The area was originally called “Pigeontown” due to the pigeons that would gather here; it was later renamed "Blue Bell" after the historic Blue Bell Inn, which is still located in the city. Today, the neighborhood is known for its major businesses, large homes, and shopping facilities. While Blue Bell still has a historic feel, it is also a modern and exciting community full of life.
