Bellevue / Dayton


Million-dollar condos with riverfront views. A B&B in an old church with Victorian décor and Jacuzzi tubs. "Casual gourmet" restaurants and hip coffeehouses. A main street with interesting architecture, dotted with benches and flowers and nicely lit storefronts. Businesses that have been operating for generations alongside businesses that have been operating for a mere year or two. This is Bellevue. If you haven't ventured past Newport on the Levee, you're missing out on this city, easily reached off I-471. And check out the Bellevue Beach Park, also on the riverfront. Its name acknowledges the city's old-time swimming spots.
