Lebanon Reviews

Lebanon is a beautiful place to live: country roads and the main feature of Round Valley Reservoir are right in reach. Great for those who love the outdoors. The public school system is fantastic as well. The downside to living here is the inability to walk to any nearby store, town, or even an acquaintance's house. You must have a car to get around.
