What Bert Has To Say About Lebanon Metro Area

Lebanon is an old transportation and minor industrial center located on the route of the original canal through the region. The area once had a steel mill. Bypassed by modern transport routes I-78 and the Pennsylvania Turnpike, this quiet town with a typical core is centrally located between Harrisburg, Hershey, Lancaster, and Reading. Annville, a minor college town 5 miles west, is attractive but areas of Lebanon itself have a somewhat old, gritty, and working-class feel.
