Belmont Reviews

I have grown up in Belmont, California since the age of 2 years old. As a resident for 17 years I have grown to love this small town. Belmont is filled with independently owned markets and restaurants that are native to the towns people. This small city is a melting pot of culture, religion, and nationality where everyone from any walk of life is welcome. The school system within this town is extraordinary, as I have attended my primary schooling within this town. Belmont's prime location right between San Francisco and San Jose is what makes this town so convenient and easy to live in. This friendly neighborhood is an amazing place to live in for families or retirees.
Review Belmont
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.
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.
