Climate & Geography

North Wales has a humid continental climate with hot summers and cold winters. The Appalachian Mountains to the west and the ocean to the east help regulate temperatures, but extremes are still possible and often short-lived. There is higher-than-average rainfall and average snowfall, as well as about 207 days of sun each year.

Recreation, Culture & Entertainment

While North Wales remains mainly residential, its surrounding townships in the county have plenty of outdoor recreation. Green Ribbon Trail is a popular destination with nearly six miles of all-level hiking, walking, and running trails. Other local parks, like Weingartner Park and Parkside Place Park have community events and 5K races as well.

Other popular amenities include several local breweries, numerous country clubs and golf courses to the east and south, and a summer farmers market on Sundays.

Residents can do all of their brand-name and high-end shopping at Montgomery Mall, or find many more options in Philadelphia or Allentown, both an hour away.

Cost of Living & Taxes

The cost of living in North Wales is above the national average. Housing is the biggest factor, followed by transportation. Other indexes like utilities, groceries, and health care all also hover just above the national average.

Pennsylvania does not tax Social Security, 401(k)s, and IRAs. Pensions are exempt for retirees above the age of 59 ½. Property taxes in the state are fairly high, whereas sales taxes are low. Several common goods like clothing, prescription medication, groceries, and residential fuels are exempt from sales tax.

Health Care

The Philadelphia metro area ranks in the top 110 communities in the country, according to Gallup’s Well-Being Index.
