What’s it Like to Live in Yardley, Pennsylvania?
It’s perfectly understandable to wonder what it’s like living here before you start shopping our homes for sale in Yardley, PA. You’ll be happy to know that this Philadelphia suburb in Bucks County offers many benefits from low taxes and a convenient location to a historic, small-town atmosphere and plenty of things to do.
One of the biggest perks of living in Yardley is the low taxes. In NJ you can pay up to 10.75% in state income tax, but in PA it’s just a flat rate of 3.07%. It gets even better. The average property tax rate in NJ is 2.42%, but in PA it’s just under 2% (check with your accountant for specific tax information). This New York Times article also states, “Besides the better tax rates, Pennsylvania river towns like Yardley offer houses with lower comparable prices than you’ll find across the water in towns like Ewing and Trenton, N.J.”
Yardley is the perfect place for empty nesters and young retirees looking to live far enough away from the high costs and traffic of major cities, but close enough to enjoy a visit or commute for work. There are several ways to get around and easy access to multiple major highways and main thoroughfares including I-295 and Route 332. It’s about 40 minutes north of Philadelphia and an hour and 40 minutes from New York City.
You’ll especially love living by the calming Delaware River, which provides a natural retreat for residents. Much of Yardley’s appeal comes from the bucolic setting, walkable downtown, and historic district where many of the 18th and 19th-century homes have been preserved. If you enjoy getting outdoors, a trip to the Delaware Canal State Park is well worth the visit. It’s a 60-mile-long state park with a towpath that winds along next to the canal and runs right through Yardley. Enjoy walking, biking, fishing, kayaking, and more. You’ll find more fun experiences and things to do in downtown Yardley. It’s full of local spots for dining, drinking, shopping, and wellness. Another great place to have a bite and enjoy some fun is at Shady Brook Farm. There are dozens of events and festivals year-round and you can pick your favorite seasonal produce fresh from the market. Best of all, it’s less than 10 minutes away from our senior community, Yardley Preserve.
