Of all the charming neighborhoods in Pittsburgh, Sewickley just might take the prize. With its New England-style Village, chockablock with mostly independent and interesting stores, this walkable community is downright idyllic. And it offers plenty in the way of amenities, from the gem of the Sweetwater Arts Center to a library that's the most active in the region to the Zen meditation center. Yes, it's a sweet spot to live, as any Villager would tell you. But it's also a great destination for visitors. Take it the splendid archiecture of the older homes to the scenic wonders that lie beyond the Village to the one-of-a-kind markets. This is one community that truly does have it all and it's more diverse than you might think.
