    Belvidere Reviews

    3 reviews
    I have grown up in Belvidere my whole life and used to love all the activities and fun things me and friends would do. However, as you find yourself getting older there becomes less and less to do in this town. The only mall nearby is 25 min away and is a disgrace, there is no where good to eat, and the education system is lacking. I feel that Belvidere is good town for young children to be able to safely run around and get enjoyment, but for teenagers and adults it holds nothing great.
    Review Belvidere
    Belvidere is a quaint, close-knit farmer's town. The schools are okay, but the land is beautiful and the downtown is cute.
    Belvidere was a great area to grow up in the school district is very small allowing for students to get one on one time with the teacher. Growing up in an area like this makes me grateful I was able to do so and I hope in the future I am able to raise my children in a similar environment.
