Mt. Lebanon

This first-ring suburb six miles south of Pittsburgh is as well known for its impressive architecture, ranging from grand Tudors to irresistible bungalows, as it is for its community spirit and Blue Ribbon schools. With seven walkable elementary schools, the T, a trolley line that runs conveniently through town, and three distinct business districts Mt. Lebanon is in some ways more urban than suburban. It has that rare blend of sophistication and small town charm. Despite its reputation as upscale, you'll find a surprising range of housing, from apartments and condos to senior living throughout the rolling hills and bricked streets of the community.  

Mt. Lebanon is home to St. Clair Hospital, the three-level Galleria, scads of shops and eclectic restaurants as well as an impressive modern library and a nine-hole golf course deemed a National Historic Landmark. With clay tennis courts under protective bubbles and a centrally located recreation center, there's no lack of activity here.

Getting around: Mt. Lebanon residents can head Downtown using the T or the bus, including the 36 bus route along Cedar Boulevard, the 38 bus route that connects to Mt. Lebanon T station and the 41 bus along Bower Hill Road.
