I have lived in Bellefonte for about 4 years now. I think it's a great place to live and have a family. It is a wonderful country home town with a city feel! They have an amazing park called Talleyrand. Kids can feed the ducks or just have a nice stroll! There are little shops that are really amazing to go through. I am so happy I live here and I wouldn't move anywhere else!
It's a nice, small town on the outside of State College. If you're looking for somewhere relatively cheap to live for school, Bellefonte is the place to live. It is only a 10 minute drive to and from State College, and is quiet.
I find that Bellefonte is a charming small town in Pennsylvania. There are a vast majority of people here. The schools are great. There is not much in the way of night life in Bellefonte, but State College is near and has an active night life strip.
