Beltsville Reviews

44 reviews
All Categories
I've had to walk alone to and from by bus stop for 3 years during high school. There were times that it was very dark in the morning and it was a decent 5 to 10 minute walk but despite that, I never felt threatened or afraid. Not even when grown men would pass me. They often even said "Good morning" as I passed.
I liked Beltsville because of its diversity, but sometimes I saw too many people of this certain race.
The school systems are not that great. Class rooms are over populated and the classes are too easy. The area is okay, it is not that clean and not everyone is friendly. I would not choose to live in this area again. I prefer areas that offer more outdoor activities and where neighborhoods are more tight knit. The area is getting over built and over populated.
