Every town has its flaws, but Belton has begun to grow. Once my husband and I first started to be in the Belton area it was not much of a town. There was not many restaurants and it did not seem like there was much development going on. Now that we have been spending time int he area for about two years and have lived here for a few months we have been able to see this community grow. Currently they just opened up a Freddy's and are getting ready to open a Texas Roadhouse. These two places are going to bring a lot of new people to the area and I think that it will benefit not just the town, but those that live their with the quality of life and home values. More people coming to town and looking to move a little bit more away from the city Belton is the perfect place to be!
Review Belton
For the two years that I have lived in Belton, my over-all experience has been pleasant.
The police force is present, but not oppressive; the residents are generally pleasant, and up until this last week, I've not had any bad experiences.

With that being said, my apartment has now been broken into and I was relieved of my flat screen television!
Its a very nice suburb of Kansas city, it far enough away from the city life but close enough to still enjoy. I have lived here more than 10 years and love it!
