I love this town. Every corner has beautiful views, animals, and great people. It is a community of people who share similar values; nature, support, and kindness. It is very close to lots of great places; Norwich which has stores, food, and a community college, Willimantic which has lots of mom and pop stores and Eastern CT University, and Storrs which is home to UCONN. Lebanon is a great town for farmers, those who enjoy nature and farmers markets, and families.

Lebanon is a fantastic small town with a wonderful hometown feel. In the summer Lebanon hosts a wide variety of events that unites the residents including farmers markets, fireworks, and a country fair.
I love living in Lebanon, CT. A town of less than 8,000 people it feels as though you know everyone. I graduated Lyman Memorial High School in 2014 with only 97 other students in my class. Lebanon is definitely the place to live if you are looking for a small town feel. One of my favorite parts of Lebanon is the green. It is really nice to be able to walk around with my family.
