We enjoy an unrivaled quality of life. With our natural beauty, low real estate costs for residents and businesses, nationally ranked schools, award-winning hospitals, low crime rate, nightlife, cultural districts, sports, recreation, proximity to Pittsburgh, low cost of living and short commutes – Wheeling is one of the most livable areas in America.

An article from the Associated Press sums up business development opportunities here:

"Wheeling has people, easy access to the amenities of Pittsburgh and local benefits such as good schools…Once people get their hands around that, they’re very excited. The area offers a pool of hardworking people interested in better-than-average pay and good benefits. In return, Wheeling allows businesses to enjoy lower real estate and labor costs than big cities such as Chicago."
