Beloit has a very good highschool which is always innovating and trying new things. In recent years local philanthropist Diane Hendricks has invested large sums of money into cleaning up, and raising the the city to a higher standard. Which has helped greatly in beloit otherwise unfairly negative image. There is a growing economy, and the area seems to breed talent from the arts to stem fields. That being said while beloit it nicely spaced between Milwaukee, and Chicago if your not trying to drive and hour to find somthing to do it can be dull from time to time. All in all, there isnt much to complain about at the moment, and the city is growing every day!

We moved to Beloit a year ago from Shorewood and before that Mequon/Thiensville which are both known for being excellent communities! We were warned against Beloit...by many! I feel more safe here than Shorewood which boarders capital drive in Milwaukee and am having a more positive experience with schools as well. I love that Beloit is as diverse as it is. It is a tight knit community that is full of
family friendly activities. The farmers market is second largest in Wisconsin, and the downtown here is up and coming with an awesome sushi restaurant, burger bar, a brewery and street taco/whiskey bar coming soon! There are many cool, well
kept, safe neighborhoods with unique homes! We chose to buy a low priced Victorian near downtown. Glad to call Beloit home.
Beloit is a small town on the border between Wisconsin and Illinois. It offers a lot of diversity that you will not find anywhere else in Wisconsin. It offers many things to do such as Bowling, Skating, Movie Theater, and much more. There are frequent community events going on so there is never a dull moment. Something that would improve Beloit would be to add more programs that would help students interact more with the community. Regardless of this, Beloit is a great town!
