    The most amazing thing about living in Belleville is that we have our own little lake. It's called Belleville lake, we always go out on the water in the summer time. It's perfect for the Belleville community because we don't have to drive far to enjoy ourselves out on a lake in the summer time. I recommend anyone to come and enjoy the lake, you won't be disappointed. There are also restaurants off of the water, we park our boat in their docks, grab a bite to eat and then return to the water for more fun. It's an amazing city and I love living here.
    Review Belleville
    I love the city of Belleville, MI. We live in this city and would love to purchase a house in this city in the future. This community has so many great events that we love attending. My son attends daycare full time here and I feel the high standards are met there to prepare my child to go into kindergarten when that time comes. If there is a downfall here it is that there are not many houses for rent or for sale in this area. Real estate has gone up a lot over the past 10 years and the cost of living in general for apartments/housing is very high compared to some of the outlying cities. I love this area because I feel safe here and I feel the community in general is very family friendly.
    So far I've met amazing people, the area is super welcoming and nice. It's easy to get around. The high school I attended was really close by and it is fairly new. I now go to college at Eastern Michigan University and it is a 20 minute commute from Belleville, the drive is very easy. There are many subdivisions close to one another so it was easy to make friends. Overall I enjoy living in belleville.
