Situated near where the Pucketa Creek joins the Allegheny River about 15 miles from Pittsburgh, the borough of Plum was originally named for the vast number of plum trees that once filled this community. Also a former coal mining town, today this area is primarily comprised of family neighborhoods and apartments for rent in Plum.
An easy commute to the Pittsburgh metro area from Plum apartments for rent make this community ideal for commuters who value the business community of nearby Pittsburgh but seek a more relaxed lifestyle. You can also find an apartment for rent in Plum closer to more modern urban entertainment and education outlets.
A short distance from several colleges and universities, including University of Pittsburgh, Duquesne University and Carnegie Mellon, Plum also offers the recreational ski slopes and vast acreage of Boyce Park. Plus, you can access nearby Allegheny Islands State Parks by boat for a weekend adventure. There’s plenty to do if you can embrace the outdoors in Plum.
