Bellevue Reviews

105 reviews
All Categories
Bellevue feels very safe. Granted, there was a burglary in my neighborhood recently, but the police response time is stellar. They were here within maybe 4 or 5 minutes and they already had leads as to who the perpetrators were. Additionally, I constantly see police vehicles cruising up and down the streets, at least 1 each day I drive. The officers seem to be friendly and professional from the encounters I have heard of. Bellevue feels like a safe suburb, without having a sleepy small town attitude. Police are vigilant and highly visible.
Review Bellevue
I am a city girl, I'm used to a lot of diversity. Bellevue lacks that diversity, there is majority of one demographic here. Very one sided when it comes to ethnic salons, or food stores. You need to drive at least 20 mins just to find certain things. If you are used to diversity I wouldn't recommended living here. On a lighter note the cost of living in Bellevue is rather cheap compared to living in a city. There is more land and house for your money.
I've lived here for 23 years and I must say that it is one of the best places to live. Everyone is friendly, the surrounding neighborhoods are growing (Omaha, Papillion, LaVista, Ralston, etc) and brining in new diverse people which gives us a different cultural experience than what we're used to.
