"Main Street, Belleville, MI"
Main Street through downtown Belleville, is nothing to "write home about". As of January 2009, 2 businesses have left the downtown area, and all that is left are 2 restaurants (Red Beans & Rice and The Red Apple), 1 credit union, 2 banks, 1 Florist, 1 muffler shop, several doctors offices, 1 dental office, 1 hardware store, 1 pharmacy, 1 tiny museum, several boutique stores and 1 gas station. I grew up in Belleville and Sumpter Township, and Belleville's Main Street used to be a nice place to walk around -- lots of little stores, including a dimestore. Now, those days are gone. The road itself extends from "Five Points" (junction of Huron River Drive, E Columbia Ave, South Street, Main Street, & W Columbia Street) to the Belleville Road Bridge, just past Liberty Street on the north end of town. This stretch of road is absolutely HORRIBLE on your tires and shocks -- more potholes than a dirt road in the springtime. It is highly recommended that if you are planning on going through downtown Belleville, you go a little further east to Liberty Street and take that through town, as it is a MUCH smoother road.
