Located eight miles south of Omaha, sitting on rolling hills overlooking the Missouri River, Bellevue, Nebraska, is known as the “Birthplace of Nebraska” and is a quiet, family-oriented community located in Sarpy County. Low unemployment, low cost of living, low utility rates, low crime, and great education systems from pre-school to post-graduate, are hallmarks of Bellevue.
Most of the 50,000 residents commute to work in Omaha, Council Bluffs, or at nearby Offutt Air Force Base, but return each night to enjoy the quality of life that this historic city can provide.
Bellevue is bordered on its east side by 1,300 acres of forest; the Fontenelle Forest area provides a natural retreat for residents and features two learning centers to educate visitors about the wetlands and preservation of the natural forest habitat. Local residents enjoy hiking and observing the abundant wildlife in this scenic area.
