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!
Review Belleville
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.
Belleville is a city in southern Illinois, located about 20 miles east of St. Louis. This area has a nominally diverse array of cultures and people. The highlights of Belleville include the downtown area, Eckert's farm and restaurant, and Lindenwood University, The downtown area is often filled with life as the chosen location for nationally recognized arts events and award-winning local and social activities. There is always something to do.
