Spotlights of South Fayette:

Boyce Mayview Park

Though technically located in Upper St. Clair, Boyce Mayview Park shares a border with South Fayette, and you'll find many residents taking advantage of its five-star facilities. Here, you'll uncover everything from vegetable gardens to hiking trails, as well as sports courts and an amazing playground.

Original Farmers Market

As its name suggests, the Original Farmers Market is as old-school as it gets—in fact, they only take cash for their local produce and artisanal goods! This open-air experience has been a local favorite for more than a century, and it currently runs from May to November. 


This one-of-a-kind entertainment venue isn't just for golf lovers—anyone can enjoy a game with friends at this high-tech driving range! Rent a golfing bay to test out your swing and see who gets the best score, or just unwind at TopGolf's swanky lounge to sample some delicious food and drinks. They even offer classes and leagues.

Things to Do in South Fayette

What You’ll LOVE in South Fayette

Wondering why so many residents adore the South Fayette lifestyle? Here are a few more perks to consider.

Nearby attractions

Thanks to its ideal location just minutes from Pittsburgh, South Fayette residents truly get to experience the best of both worlds. If you're looking for something fun to do, take a quick drive to the Pittsburgh Botanic Garden or Chartiers Valley Shopping Center. South Fayette also has a prime selection of golf courses and green spaces—we love Hickory Heights Golf Club and Fairview Park. Don't forget to show up for South Fayette Community Day every August or head to the public Aqua Club, too.

Stellar schools

Even if you don't have children of your own, it's worth factoring public schools into your home search—living in a top-rated district can actually increase property values over time. Luckily, the area's younger residents attend the South Fayette School District, which operates one elementary, one middle, one intermediate, and one high school. South Fayette's High School has gained a reputation for its award-winning band program, and the district on the whole boasts an enviable 98% graduation rate with record-high test scores.

Shopping and dining

Most of South Fayette's businesses can be found along Washington Pike, a road that runs concurrent to Interstate 79. In addition to various shopping centers with all of your everyday conveniences, South Fayette also offers a diverse selection of local retailers and eateries. We recommend relaxing on the patio with a cold beer at The Craft Jackalope or ordering a fresh pizza courtesy of Railyard Grill. Newbury Market—a mixed-use development—is also coming to South Fayette in the next few years.
