Mt. Lebanon [1] is an affluent suburb in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, about seven miles south of Downtown Pittsburgh. Uptown Mt. Lebanon, a business district along Washington Road in the northern part of the township, is one of the more prominent business districts in the area outside of Pittsburgh itself.

Get in

By car, the quickest way from Downtown Pittsburgh is to take the Liberty Tunnel and Liberty Avenue south until it becomes Washington Road (U.S. Route 19) upon entering Mt. Lebanon.

The Port Authority provides public transit access from Pittsburgh to Mt. Lebanon - including the "T" light rail service. The 42C and 42S rail lines will take you from Downtown through the small suburb of Dormont to Mt. Lebanon station, which will put you directly in Uptown Mt. Lebanon. The 42C stops at Castle Shannon, a suburb located due east of Mt. Lebanon, while the 42S (along with the 47S, which does not serve Uptown) continues south to serve South Hills Village, a mall just beyond the southern end of Mt. Lebanon. Most of Mt. Lebanon lies within Zone 1, where the fare is $2 for a trip from downtown, while South Hills Village lies in Zone 2, where the fare is $2.60 from downtown.

Get around

See

  • Mt. Lebanon Cemetery, 509 Washington Road (just north of the Mt. Lebanon "T" Station). A huge cemetery (almost 25,000 people are buried here) with a very park-like atmosphere. The cemetery dates to the 1880s, and there are a lot of interesting gravestones to look at.
  • St. Bernard Roman Catholic Church, 311 Washington Road, +1 412 561-3300, [2]. A huge catholic church - be sure to step inside and look up at the intricately decorated ceiling and the beautiful stained glass windows.

Do

Buy

  • South Hills Village mall, just south of Mt. Lebanon at Washington Road (US Route 19) and Fort Couch Road.

Eat

  • Pizzaiolo, 703 Washington Road. The food is always fantastic, punctuated by Nepoletana pizza from a woodfired brick oven, homemade desserts, and a classy winebar serving over 200 italian wines.
