Belmont Reviews

26 reviews
All Categories
Belmont is within a five mile radius to almost anything you need whether it be good schools, restaurants, malls, freeways, and hospitals. It's very quiet and beautiful with a majority of Belmont being on a hill, it is also very, very green with trees in every possible space available between the houses and streets.
Review Belmont
What's there not to like about Belmont? It's funky -- many side streets are without sidewalks and haven't been paved since the Eisenhower administration. But the school's are first-rate, young families are mixing in with more seasoned residents, and the weather's great.
With the growing influx of techies to the Bay Area, the prices of houses are going up. This sets up gentrification in areas once populated by immigrant populations that have been there for many years. While this isn't necessarily their fault, they do get blamed for it. The overall living environment in that area is top notch and can't be beat. There is also a wide variety of restaurants that are affordable which makes going out easy
