Located about 18 miles northeast of Philadelphia, Croydon is a census-designated place (CDP) with a small population of just under 10,000 residents. It’s located in the Bristol Township in Bucks County, Pennsylvania and is a highly dense suburban area that garners a lot of attention.
Croydon is nestled away in the southeast corner of Pennsylvania where the Neshaminy Creek meets the Delaware River. It’s bounded by the Neshaminy Creek to the west, the Delaware River to the south, the Delaware Expressway to the north, and West Bristol to the east.
It has easy access to Philadelphia via State Road (or Bristol Pike) and the I-95 (the Delaware Expressway — about 18 miles away. It’s also about four miles away from Burlington, New Jersey via Bristol Pike and the Veteran Highway, which crosses the Burlington-Bristol Bridge.
Despite being just 2.5 square miles of land, there’s plenty to do in Croydon — when you’re not visiting Philly or Burlington, of course. Some of the best sights to see include Neshaminy Creek Brewing Co., Neshaminy State Park, the Neshaminy State Marina, and Neshaminy Creek.
