We're In Boone County For A Reason 4 rating By Anonymous ( May 10, 2018) I love living in Belvidere, IL. We have around 25,000 people living here and each person is just as friendly as the first! With new faces to see and meet everyday making friends is a breeze! Of course, like with any other midwest state we do experience a cold winter, but I person ...Read More ally think this is a plus. I’ve never personally been a fan of hotter weather all year-round so I love when fall and winter rolls around for cooling purposes and fashion.

There is lots to do in and around our area that is great for both resident locals and tourists. Boone County is the perfect way to describe our area. The Summerfield Farm and Zoo is awesome for everyday if you’re someone that gets comfort and calm from petting and being around animals of all kinds. The Golf Club is a great space for those of you who would like to try something new or work on your swing. Read Less
