    Belle itself doesn't have many restaurants except for one, Mario's pizza. The pizza there is really good and they have a lot of options, but they are a little expensive. However, about a mile down the road we have Taco Bell that just recently open and the food and service is great! Also, a little more down the road you will come across a McDonald's, Arby's, Gino's, and a Shoney's.

    Family dollar located here in Belle is very handy at times. It is open from 9am to 9pm and has just about everything you can thing of. For example, say you are having a family get together but you ran out of snacks and drinks, instead of running to Walmart you can just go to family dollar. The employees there are very helpful too!

    The weather in Belle is usually pretty decent. Belle is located in the Kanawha valley so during the winter time we don't get hit with a lot of snow. During the spring and summer it is sunny, warm, and beautiful out!
