County Lines Magazine is in its 41st year of continous monthly publication. Based in West Chester, PA, in the heart of Chester County, the area it serves is steeped in history and tradition. It is also a wealthy, attractive, fast-growing region, situated at the prosperous suburban crossroads of Philadelphia and Wilmington.

As a magazine, our editorial focus is the fascinating culture and vibrant lifestyle of this very special region. More than 80,000 people read our magazine. In general, they are sophisticated, tasteful, community-oriented, well-educated and affluent. They are largely home-owners with families. They like to shop, dine, and take advantage of all life has to offer, and many have the means to do so.

As a business, our mission is to serve the advertisers who want to reach this readership. The coveted, long-standing relationship between County Lines and its loyal readers is unmatched.
