Sewickley Reviews

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.
Review Sewickley
Every person I have met in the area has been kind and driven. There are many new restaurants, exercise programs and summer camps that have provided environments to meet new people. My favorite activity is going to the farmer's market with my mother every Saturday, which reminds me of summers in Michigan. I could imagine myself coming back to Sewickley after I graduate because it has everything I could ever ask for and more.
Friendly and fairly affluent, it's a nice place to raise a family. My only complaint is the high home prices.
