What is considered Bellevue?
Bellevue is east of Papillion and La Vista, South of Omaha along the Missouri River.
Taking the Kennedy Freeway into Bellevue will allow you to exit on to any of the main roads through Bellevue: Chandler, Cornhusker, Fort Crook, and Capehart Roads. Highway 370 east runs into the south side of Bellevue near Offutt Air Force Base.
According to a recent census, more than 60% of those living in Bellevue are 25 years of age or older and nearly 40% have children 18 years of age or younger.
Offutt Air Force Base
Offutt Air Force Base is the headquarters of the U.S. Strategic Command, the Air Force Weather Agency, and the 55th Wing of the Air Combat Command. During WWII Offutt housed the Martin bomber plant, which manufactured for the planes used to drop atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan.
Offutt hosts a popular open house and air show during the summer. The Defenders of Freedom show includes a variety of demonstrations and exhibits – including the popular Blue Angels on various occasions.

Bellevue is considered a quiet and safe area to live or work. Visitors and residents shouldn’t feel uncomfortable navigating the town alone day or night. It is not uncommon for children to walk home from school.
