Moving to Monroeville Area, Advice Please!

Jump to last reply

My husband recently got a new job in the Monroeville/Plum area. We currently live in Mt. Lebanon and are planning to move to that area in August. I need advice on which areas to look into since I nor anyone I know know much about the area. We have two small children so safety and schools are the top priority. We will be renting at first and want to spend around $1100 or less per month. I've heard good things about Murrysville but I wonder if that's too upscale.

The area doesn't have to be the best, a simple middle class area with good schools would be nice. Also advice on shopping, activities, kids groups, places for kids, kids classes would also be appreciated. Like I said I don't know anything about the area so almost any tips will be helpful.

Please don't lecture me that Mt. Lebanon has the best schools and that we should stay here. I've already heard it. I know the schools here are fantastic. The commute is just too much stress on the whole family.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
