It's a very small town with not much to do. The closest town is Ocala, which does not have much to do. There are gas stations and banks on every corner, and some of the beliefs of the people are highly conservative. However, with a population of about 5000, it has the small town charm that comes with the south. It always feels like home whenever I return on weekends from college. The flea market is large and you can find just about everything you could want there, from honey to potentially illegal brass knuckles. We recently got a Zaxby's, Dunkin Donuts, and Popeye's, which are big advancements for us. It's a town that's really trying, and it seems to be having some sort of success.

I love the small town of Belleview, everyone knows each other. Store owners make sure you get the best service possible. Crime rate is super low, with vandalism being the most common crime, violent crimes are non existent. The schools are pretty diverse with all races and colors mixing and mingling. Racism is not something we like to see or tolerate.

Belleview is a small town in Marion County. It's your average Southern town with a very active Chamber of Commerce always hosting events at City Hall. If it's Southern Hospitality you're looking for this is the place.
