Brussels just wasn't for me
I didn't particularly like Brussels. I didn't feel safe walking around at night and the beggers on the street were very forward in asking you for money. The city center is easy to walk around and the fries and waffles were great and CHEAP! But the rest of the city was very expensive in my opinion. We made the trip out to see the atomium which was really cool. Besides the city center, the rest of the city is a bit spread out and hard to get to. The attractions were pretty, but just not worth it.
Insider Tip:Check out all of the little shops around the city and in the little narrow streets. Some of them are really cool and those people working the shops were probably the nicest people I met in the city.
