I've lived in Belhaven my whole life. It's a great town to raise you r children in, as its very family friendly and the schools around are very good in terms of academics and safety. However, it is lacking in things to do. In order to go see a movie or go to a real fast food restaurant, you have to drive about 30 minutes to get to little Washington. Its a very quaint town right on the water, so its perfect if you enjoy things like kayaking or boating
