Belvidere is an old Victorian town with a square mile radius. The Victorian houses are a sight to behold! Belvidere runs right along the Pequest river which makes this small town a prime fishing area. It is a must see!
Review Belvidere
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.
Belvidere is a quaint, close-knit farmer's town. The schools are okay, but the land is beautiful and the downtown is cute.
