Bellevue is truly an amazing city to live in. It's the third biggest city in Nebraska, but it still has the friendliness and feel of a small town. The city's two public high schools are both excellent schools, both with exceptional marching bands and academic programs. Bellevue is a booming place itself but is also just a ten-minute drive to the Olde Market in Omaha. Houses are affordable and neighborhoods are safe, and everything you need to get to is no more than a fifteen-minute drive!

I love Bellevue, especially living in Fontenelle Forest. There are not a lot of forests in Nebraska, but Fontenelle Forest feels a bit like Oregon or California foothills.
The city itself has a lot of restaurants and stores, and they are all easily accessible. We are also very close to downtown Omaha and the airport. If I want to entertain myself in a casino, I am only about 10 minutes from Council Bluffs, IA.
I love Bellevue! It can have that city vibe, but still have a smaller city vibe. I love how close Bellevue is to Omaha. There are also upcoming food joints coming into Bellevue, which makes it feel more city like.
