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.

There are many businesses, food, and chain businesses in Lebanon. In the city, you're either in the good parts or the bad parts. Its very crammed downtown home wise. Very run down and un-kept homes. Very little pride through the city. Some parts of the town are gorgeous and the town has some tiny little treasures.
Lebanon is the average American town. However, there isn't much to do in Lebanon. You'll have to go to any surrounding towns to have fun. There are some trendy restaurants popping up here and there. There definitely needs to be work done, but it's not a bad town.
