Lebanon is an okay town. Its proximity to places such as Harrisburg, Lancaster, Hershey, etc. without the high cost of living makes it a great place to live if you enjoy visiting those cities. The area is very conservative and lacking in diversity. People are generally not very welcoming to people new to the area, so you have to live here for a while until you are accepted into the community. There is never much to do, but the community is nice and the surrounding areas are beautiful farmland. The public schools here are also excellent, which makes it a great place to raise kids.
I have lived in the city of Lebanon for pretty much my whole life. The community here is so welcoming- from the students to the families to local organizations. There is lots of diversity as well- people come from many backgrounds to live here. Houses can range in price depending on what you want. The schools have a quality education as well. Overall, I love my hometown and I can't wait to see it grow and prosper into an even better town.
