Paoli Today

Paoli boasts a small-town feeling enhanced by the sophistication associated with the Main Line of Philadelphia. Located 26 miles west of Philadelphia, it is comprised of three townships: Easttown, Tredyffrin, and Willistown.

Each township sets its own tax rate, administers planning and zoning boards, and has its own police force.

The community has 3 volunteer fire companies, with modern equipment and ambulance service, as well as the county’s regional trauma center and hospital that provide 24-hour emergency care to residents.

Regional rail and bus service plus a much-anticipated transportation center renovation assure riders access to Philadelphia as well as other East coast metropolitan centers of commerce and industry.


With its charming, one-of-a-kind dining options, Paoli satisfies every palate. Feast on steaks, seafood or delicious international cuisine. Relax après shopping with specialty coffees and just-baked donuts or scones. Grab a quick lunch of fresh-made pizza, hoagies, burgers & fries or a Philly cheesesteak that’s the real deal.

Evenings, indulge in unique specialty beers and hearty pub food at our cozy neighbor bars and grills. Or pick up delicious dinners—ready to eat or pop in the oven.

For breakfast, lunch, and dinner — or snacks in between — Paoli has it all. Best of all, most restaurants in Paoli are family-owned. You'll be hard pressed to find the same warm and friendly service—or distinctive meals—anywhere else.
