"Everybody's Hometown" is the motto of Media, which is the County Seat of Delaware County, Pennsylvania. Media is located at the end of SEPTA's (South Eastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority) Regional Rail R3 and Trolley Line 101 that takes travelers to downtown Philadelphia and beyond. The trolley runs on State Street which is a bustling tree lined street with businesses of all types, from long established businesses like Tancreed Dress Shop and Deals to relatively new ones like Trader Joe's and Ten Thousand Villages.
One can easily spend time on foot in Media visiting art galleries, shopping in stores that sell handcrafted items or clothes, to all the necessary stores one would find in a town that houses the county court house. All this walking can make one hungry, but that is not a problem for there are ample eateries to satisfy almost any palette from Sushi to pizza. The local library hosts events for children and the theater brings in local and outside talent to grace their hall.
Glen Providence Park is tucked away just a few blocks beyond the end of the trolley line offering a place for a stroll down a hill and around a pond. In addition to the trolley there are buses that go through town, and there are major highways like I-95 and the Blue Route 476 that are just minutes away.
Housing in Media is varied, from older Victorian homes to new townhouses, apartments above stores to rooms in a motel.
Trees are a big thing in Media and that is not just by chance. A conscious effort has been made over the years to keep Media a town with trees and as a result Media has received the "Tree City USA" designation. The young trees that presently line State Street from the theater on up to the end of the trolley line were planted to replace the mature trees that had become ill.
To understand Media's motto "Everybody's Hometown" plan on visiting Media at various times of the year. From Street Fairs in the summer to strolling State Street during the Christmas season with all of the trees shining with lights and music amplified on the street, to the town wide Yard Sale in the fall, and Dining Under the Stars in the Summer. Oh and don't forget the "2nd Saturday Media" every month.
So whatever the reason, don't miss the opportunity to make Media your hometown, even if you live in another town.
