About Lebanon, TN

First things first, we’re here to properly teach you how to pronounce Lebanon. If you want to blend in with the locals, you’ll need to know we say “Leb-nin” rather than “Leb-a-non” which is often followed by an, “Oh honey, you aren’t from around here, are ya?”​ Lebanon’s historic town square and community feel will draw you in with local shops, family-owned restaurants, breweries, and more.
