Named by a French linguist for its "beautiful view" or "belle vue," this quiet community of 8,500 people is nestled along the Ohio River north of Pittsburgh.
Bellevue's main business district is very much an old-fashioned downtown with an interesting mix of specialty shops, restaurants and services.
Nearby are public parks, neighborhoods with homes dating from the early 20th century and even a few cobblestone streets.
Many events in the town are produced by Enjoy Bellevue, creative community collaborative of residents and supporters.
Varies per business.
Metered parking is available along Lincoln Avenue as well at adjacent municipal parking lots.
