March, 2009 UPDATE: I've added a new restaurant tip from a recent visit
November, 2008 I love the fact that I can walk from my mother's snug home to Main Street, Bellevue each morning. It's become a regular part of my day. Stopping by The Muddy Cup* for a caramel macchiato is an indulgence I'll miss once I travel back to Texas. Small towns are wonderful!
Bellevue, named for its 'beautiful view' was incorporated in 1867 and is a borough of Allegheny County, located near the Ohio River. This lovely little town which adjoins Pittsburgh offers pedestrian-friendly streets, numerous eateries and cute little shops. Although the shops sometimes come and go, they are always replaced and never left empty as in some small towns.
I have a fond connection to Bellevue because my mother lives nearby and we often come to enjoy a meal or wander in and out of the antique or gift shops along Lincoln Avenue.
One "must-see" is the Andrew Bayne Memorial Library, a delight because it is housed in a magnificent Victorian style home bequeathed to the town by two sisters, Amanda Bayne Balph and Jane Bayne Teece.
If you are close enough to visit, take a quick drive along the side streets which will lead you to many 19th century homes, some lovingly restored and others waiting to be discovered!
