Belleview Reviews

It's a very small town with not much to do. The closest town is Ocala, which does not have much to do. There are gas stations and banks on every corner, and some of the beliefs of the people are highly conservative. However, with a population of about 5000, it has the small town charm that comes with the south. It always feels like home whenever I return on weekends from college. The flea market is large and you can find just about everything you could want there, from honey to potentially illegal brass knuckles. We recently got a Zaxby's, Dunkin Donuts, and Popeye's, which are big advancements for us. It's a town that's really trying, and it seems to be having some sort of success.
I have grown up in this small, quaint town. There's a variety of restaurants that you could grab a bite at any time of day; Pasta Faire, Belleview Pizza, Domino's, Hardee's etc. Although there isn't that much to do, there is a subtle homely vibe to the town. The community is one. You cannot go to the grocery store without knowing someone. It is also a safe neighborhood, one that is good to raise kids in. It's near Ocala and the Villages, where fun things are conveniently located. It is also in the middle of Florida and is less than two hours from the beach, to go fishing, a water park, a theme park, or even a museum. It's overall a great town.
I love the small town of Belleview, everyone knows each other. Store owners make sure you get the best service possible. Crime rate is super low, with vandalism being the most common crime, violent crimes are non existent. The schools are pretty diverse with all races and colors mixing and mingling. Racism is not something we like to see or tolerate.
