Spotlights of Paoli

Paoli Shopping Center

Take a drive to the corner of East Lancaster Avenue and Leopard Road, and you'll find the Paoli Shopping Center. This unique retail hub showcases all of Paoli's top shopping and culinary destinations, including Paper Source, Trove General Store, and LOFT. Paoli Shopping Center also has a few larger chains, a grocery store, a bank, and a pharmacy.

Valley Forge National Historic Park

Believe it or not, Paoli is actually located just minutes from Valley Forge, one of the most important sites of the American Revolution. Today, the battlefield has been transformed into a historic park where visitors can tour Washington's headquarters on the Schuylkill River, view the National Memorial Arch, or take a hike through the park's network of trails.

Paoli Battlefield Historical Park

Though it's technically located in Malvern, the Paoli Battlefield Historic Park was the site of a lesser-known encounter during the American Revolution. It has since been transformed into a memorial park and gathering space for the community. In fact, the Paoli Battlefield hosts the oldest continuously-held Memorial Day parade in America!

What You'll LOVE in Paoli

Paoli's rich history and one-of-a-kind charm make it a fabulous place to call home—but there's even more to explore! Here are a few more highlights of living in Paoli:

Top Attractions

There's always something fun going on in Paoli! If you want to explore some of the area's native flora and fauna, try taking a trip to the nearby Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens. Paoli is also convenient to the Wharton Esherick Museum, the Anthony Wayne House, and various other historic sites. Love to golf? Be sure to check out the Main Line's top public and private courses, all of which are close to Paoli. 

Public Transportation

Paoli's location on the Main Line makes it easy to get around in no time at all. Many of the town's commuters utilize the Paoli Station, which operates both SEPTA and Amtrak lines. However, most local trains that serve Paoli end in Malvern instead of going all the way to Center City—the nearby Thorndale stop will take you into Philadelphia through the same train station. Multiple bus routes also run throughout Paoli, including the popular Route 92 line. 

Local Schools

Because Paoli is split between two different townships, students can be zoned for either the Tredyffrin/Easttown School District or the Great Valley School District. Both options provide plenty of unique educational opportunities for children that will prepare them for life after graduation. Some students choose to attend one of Paoli's many private institutions, such as St. Norbert School.
