I LOVE Sewickley. The walkability of the town is amazing-groceries, bars, movies, yoga,swimming,post office,dry cleaners,library ,hospital, shopping and great restaurants. I can be walking in the quiet woods for > 1 hour in minutes. The international airport is 15 minutes away. Downtown Pittsburgh and the sports and cultural district are 20 minutes away. The schools are A+ with both private and public again walking distance from our home. Biking, skiing, golf, kayaking,paddle tennis,boating, fishing? Yep

My parents moved our family here specifically for safety, public school, and opportunities. Never made a better choice. Love Sewickley!!!
Sewickley is a broad reaching suburb in Pittsburgh. It's a really nice place to live. There are nice family owned businesses in the main part of Sewickley, all of which have unique, beautiful products. I love that there isn't the major hustle and bustle of living in the main city of Pittsburgh. There is also an array of houses in a large range of prices to fit everyone's budget. I love the fact that I feel safe in Sewickley too. It's a perfect place to raise a family.
