All About

Living in Media, PA

If you're looking for an apartment in a friendly town with a diverse retail center and smart growth, you'll find it all in Media. Nicknamed Everybody's Hometown, Media is a small, charming town located in central Delaware County in the Philadelphia Metropolitan Area. Here you'll find brick sidewalks, tree-lined streets and numerous landmarks.

When you rent an apartment in Media, you don't need to own a car. This walkable community still has a trolley that runs through town and a commuter train that goes directly into neighboring Philadelphia. No matter where you live, you're just a short distance from parks and playgrounds. Plus, the town's three elementary schools are all within walking distance. Media's quiet, canopied streets invite you for an evening stroll. In fact, the town was named a Tree City by the National Arbor Day Foundation.

Media also holds the distinction of being the country's first Fair Trade City. So not only are apartments affordable, but the town supports smart growth, environmental sustainability and fair wages. That means you can expect to see and enjoy fair trade coffees, trees and goods at retailers, restaurants, workplaces and at town-sponsored events. You can also be sure that the cost of living is reasonable and wages are decent.

Apartment residents also enjoy living in a culturally vibrant community. This town will give you something to sing about at any one of its annual musical events. Celebrate American music at the Americana Roots Ramble festival in April, where you can listen to folk, early rock, rockabilly, bluegrass and zydeco. June brings the annual State Street Blues Stroll where you can catch live blues on 17 stages. And then ring in the fall season with the Jazz By Night Celebration.

Find out why everyone's talking about Media. You'll find a place where you can grow as well as a wealth of available apartments for rent. And, ApartmentGuide.com can help you along in your search with detailed neighborhood information, maps and listings of apartments for rent.
