Great neighborhood to grow up in. Schools are great, community is great, everything is great. However, this probably isn't the best place for people without kids in their 20s and 30s.

There's not much going on here. To find anything you have to travel to downtown Pittsburgh, which isn't far, but if you're an active individual who likes to meet like-minded individual in a social setting, live closer to the city. The adjacent township Mt Lebanon is a little closer to the city and has slightly more nightlife on the Route 19 strip.

Lots of chain restaurants both eat in and fast food and several privately owned ones too. Galleria which borders bethel in Mt lebanon offers high end retail and south hills village mall offers a diverse selection of retail stores (and recently renovated). Home improvement stores are close by and from where I live, I can walk to the librsry, market district giant (grocery store), mall, bookstore, kohls, trolley line, target, walmart.... couldn't ask for more in a suburban setting!
I like how nice people can be. I do not like how expensive it is to live out here. Bethel has a good school system. I like how they have different levels in high school and for each subject the level varies. I like how big the public library is. I believe Bethel Park is a safe neighborhood and family friendly. Bethel is kinda of diversity, some people do not think they are very friendly to diverse people.
