Belmont is a small city, but has plenty to offer. It is filled with friendly people and nice neighborhoods that emit an inviting, homey, feel to the city. Belmont also has a lot to offer in terms of scenery, where a walk on any sunny day would allow one to appreciate the hills, forests, wildlife, and of course the Ohio River that runs along side the city.
