Their test scores are wounderful. Yet, Bellefonte's are really not to far behind and are in fact very good for a small town. Schools in Bellefonte are also only closed on the FIRST day of deer hunting season, not the first few as you said. I think it's a nice thing that they give the kids a day off to enjoy their hobby. They do the same thing in many central PA schools. I would also have to say that with all the times I've visited Bellefonte, and with all the people I know there, I have never found racism, sexism, or xenophobia to be a problem at all. Bellefonte offers small town living with friendly people, good schools, and a lovely downtown. All this with only a 15 minute drive to State College and a top university. What more could you want?
Is the downtown (movie theater, La Tratoria/other restaurants, shops) enjoyable in the evenings? Do some places close earlier than others? And the important question - where are some recommended ice cream locations (besides the Dairy Queen)

I would say that the shops close pretty early in since they are family owned and run. At talleyrand they have "Music in the Park" where a bunch of area groups come to play every Sunday evening in the Summer. It's a lot of fun! There's always a lot of people there with their lawn chairs and families come to it as well. As for ice cream, the last time I went to the Cafe on the Park across from Talleyrand, they had creamery ice cream(from PSU's famous university creamery) YUM!

We did have ice cream at the Cafe on the Park - what an amazing little place! Thanks for the info re: downtown hours, too.

I lived in Bellefonte, back in the 1990s, on the wrong side of the tracks. Really. Every morning, the (expletive deleted) diesel would blow its teeth rattling horn. If you wish to sleep late, get ear plugs!
