Residents of Bellevue have the luxury of living in a community filled with natural beauty and a special connection with the Mississippi River. Throughout history, the Mississippi River has served as an important passageway, carrying people, explorers, fur traders, steamboats, barges and much more.
Today, people from all over the world visit Bellevue to experience its beauty.
Residents need only step out their front door to see firsthand the mighty Mississippi’s great power and majestic qualities.
Steamboats, barges, yachts and pleasure craft make their way up and down the river most months of the year.
It’s a sight to behold, whether strolling along the paved riverwalk which stretches the length of town along the riverbanks or taking in the view from the bluffs overlooking the river.
As a community right on the riverbanks of the Mississippi, there are many ways residents live out daily a true riverfront experience.
Downtown establishments provide a nice selection of products and services. Local restaurants offer residents an assortment of foods to please the palate.
There are many festivals and events held throughout the year that residents regularly participate in.
The benefit of being a resident is that it only takes a few minutes to get to these events instead of traveling for hours or days, as is the case for our national and international visitors.
Spring, summer, winter or fall, there is always something to see or do in Bellevue.
We welcome everyone and look forward to sharing our special corner of the country we call home with you.
