    Bellows Falls Reviews

    My overall experience in Bellows Falls was great! This town is small, but quaint. Bellows Falls is full of history; not to mention, it contains many local shops. Everybody I came across was friendly. If you have the opportunity to visit, you must stop by and catch a movie at the Opera House. It only cost $5!!! If I could change anything, I would recommend cleaning the town as a whole. The town square is beautiful, but the surrounding homes need a little TLC.
    Bellows Falls is full of local mom and pop shops which are wicked cute, but not always practical! Luckily we have a bigger chain grocery store just five minutes away, but in another state.
    Police are more concerned about getting drugs off the street then anything else. They need to put focus onto all the problems around not just that one problem. There is vandalism and other crimes going on that don't matter to them.
