I grew up in Bellville and lived there for about ten years. It is where I called home and I am happy to say I do not call it home anymore. It is a great town, just not for me. There is nothing to do around the town. It is a very closed-minded, conservative town. If you enjoy being able to voice your opinions, have many activities to do at the tip of your fingers, or having a prosperous social life, Bellville is not for you. If you enjoy quiet weekends in, gossip-filled restaurants, or have a family of little children, then Bellville is definitely the place for you to be. It is family friendly, a safe town, and the public education system is always rated 'excellent'.
