Philadelphia & surrounding areas
Philadelphia is the economic and cultural center of the greater Delaware Valley along the lower Delaware and Schuylkill rivers within the Northeast megalopolis. It is composed of counties located in Southeastern Pennsylvania, South Jersey, Delaware, and the northern Eastern Shore of Maryland.
The Delaware Valley’s 2019 estimated population of 7.21 million makes it the ninth-largest combined statistical area in the United States.
Many South Jersey residents commute to Philadelphia to work, but choose to live in one of the quieter Jersey communities.
