Beloit Reviews

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!
Beloit, Wisconsin is right on the border of Illinois. When people hear you're from Beloit they automatically think about crimes and how Beloit is not safe, even though they're not completely wrong I wouldn't of wanted to grow up in any other city. According to neighborhoodscout.com Beloit's crime index number is 14/100, 100 being the safest city. I've grown up with families that have had their kids shot. Beloit can be scary but in times of crisis we are all there for each, we're all giving hugs and giving shoulders to cry on. People who have committed crimes seem to deal with gangs and drug deals. Getting people off the street who are involved with either gangs or drug deals would make Beloit a much nicer community.
