    As a current resident in Bethel, I would recommend this town to anyone. A small town with an everything you need in town. The community is great, friendly and watchful of others around. Great time able to take a walk about a peaceful town no problems. Churches, gas stations, restaurants, banks you name it, Bethel has it in town! You would not be disappointed.
    Review Bethel
    I like that it is 8 miles from Georgetown,five miles from Hamersville and Felicity. It has restaurants ,parts stores, hardware stores convenient stores, nail and hair salons ,veterinarians, pet hospital,dollar stores.It a one stop shop .
    When we moved here I did not think I was going to like it, that was 7 years ago. I love our community now. So many wonderful people and our local library is awesome. The unfortunate part is that its so far from the city but Eastgate is only about 30 minutes. This is a very safe neighborhood and a school levy just passed.
