The commerical hub of the Main Line. Chock full of banks, pizza shops, classy restaurants, artsy coffee shops, and BMW's, Audi's and Lexus's coursing through Lancaster Avenue at any given time of day. Also home to one of the original IHOP restaurants. Ardmore is a fairly diverse town, and does not have the reputation for being as money-laden as adjacent municipalities such as Bryn Mawr, Haverford, and Wynnewood. Suburban Square, one of the first outdoor shopping centers, is located here.
Ardmore attracts the wealthy patrons of the Main Line because of its well-known business district.
Many residents of West Philly shop in Ardmore since Suburban Square is only a stone's throw away from the train platform.
