Monroeville is a family friendly suburban area full of fun, shopping, and eating! The public schools are full of educated teachers and administrators who want to see their students succeed. There are apartments and houses available to fit your budget and the neighborhood and if looking for a job there are staffing agencies that can help with that. Although the nightlife is not exciting, the city is about 15 minutes away and I'm sure there's something you could find that'll fit your interest.

Monroeville, PA is a great place to live and everything is close by! In Monroeville, there are many restaurants whether you'd like fast food or to dine in and if you're more into cooking you can find what you're looking for in one of the many grocery stores/markets. There is also an array of shopping from the Monroeville Mall to plazas or car lots! Though the nightlife isn't as impressive as many may hoped, the City of Pittsburgh is full of fun things to do and is about 15 minutes away!
I've been living in Monroeville for five years, and the least I can say is how amazing a place it is. One of its qualities I love the most is its diversity. There is a great blend of youth, elderly, white, black, Asian and immigrant people, all very friendly. I am also amazed by the shopping and nightlife. We have everything, from restaurants to clothing stores, and even great hospitals. This area is also very convenient for families. I am married myself and have two kids, and I am happy with the work public schools do here. There is also a well-maintained community park that we frequent all summers.
The only thing I wish was better about Monroeville is the housing market. I am looking to buy a house and would love to find the perfect home here, but there aren't that many houses available.
