I really enjoy downtown Belleville each time I am there. From Oktoberfest, the Christmas Market, to just enjoying a meal or movie on Main Street, Belleville is a beautiful town to enjoy with friends and family!

Belleville tries and fails at many efforts to maintain a socially viable downtown. Their attempts at consistent shops, restaurants, and nightlife are generally not long-lived. Residents in the area are willing to try new things and places. But ultimately trail back to their comfort zone. There are no large business opportunities without commuting to St. Louis. Small shop owners come and go.
It's a nice suburban area with events downtown all year round! As long as you enjoy the suburban area with the occasional crop field on the way to work, this place is slow and nice to live.
