"Belleville – Downtown on the Lake"

Belleville is one of those cities that just has it all. It is not so big that it feels cluttered or loud, but it is not so small that you have to drive somewhere else for amenities. It really has everything you need, plus an inland lake.

The city itself only occupies about 2 square miles and at least a mile of it is lakefront property, including a quaint downtown area with a charming retail district. There is actually a nice mix of races here and very little crime. Belleville is definitely a safe area where you can raise a family. The school district is larger than you might think but definitely a recommended one. If you are a college student, you can be to Eastern or University of Michigan in less than 15 minutes as well as several other colleges.

Commuting to work in nearby areas is not an issue since I-94 runs right through the city. You will also find that for as small as the area is, there are some exceptional dining choices to enjoy, including Bayou Grill, Dos Pesos Mexican Restaurant, Johnny’s Grill and Culver’s, where there is even Wi-Fi. You will also get to look forward to the annual Belleville Strawberry Festival!
  • City has it all
