Tips for Moving From DC to Philadelphia

Philadelphia city hall

Any move can be a challenge, but an out-of-state move from the DC area to Philadelphia can be a bit more difficult.

Here are a few tips to keep in mind that may make the process easier:

  • Philadelphia is a walkable city, so a car is not an absolute requirement.
  • There are many public transportation options, including buses, trains, subways, and trolleys.
  • The cost of living is lower in Philadelphia than in the DC area, but there are city taxes.
  • Buying a home may be cheaper than renting, so consider your options carefully.
  • There are plenty of parks, museums, and historical sites for families to visit, many for free.
  • Expect to buy food in smaller markets, beer at distributors, and liquor at only state-run stores.

Philadelphia has many great neighborhoods to choose from, such as Chestnut Hills with large single-family homes, Manayunk for professionals who work in the city center (downtown Philadelphia), or University City for college students.

If you’d rather live outside of the city proper, the suburbs of Chesterbrook, Penn Wynne, Ardmore, and Narbeth are all good choices with impressive schools, great atmospheres, and friendly communities.
