Lebanon, IN is a good city. This is a friendly city. Lebanon public schools are excellent. My son is attending preschool at Lebanon, IN. The integration is excellent. This is a lovely place. People are living healthy here and the real estate market is good.
This is a small city where you can reach the needed services easily, but public transportation is low. It is better to have your car.
This is a safe place. I have been living here four years ago and have never had any safety issue. The apartments are affordable.
There are a lot of Job opportunities at Lebanon. Many warehouses are at Lebanon and are always looking for employees.

Small town, nothing special. Very drama-filled, conservative, middle-class white family town. The school system is great, really updated and lots of opportunities. Filled with a lot of old traditions, old restaurants, and lots of gas stations. The new mayor is young, I really like him. Lots of drama related to police, personal relationships, jobs, and kids. People don't like change in Lebanon, but the new square is really nice and pretty.
I love Lebanon, I grew up here and after graduating from LHS and going off to college I choose to return because I knew it would a great place to raise a family.

We are far enough out that we don't have some of the issues you see in other communities, but still close enough to Indy and Lafayette that nothing is hard to get to.

More and more local shops and restaurants are starting to open up and the city does a great job putting on some great events. The parks and schools are great as well!
