I love Bay City because it's home to me. I tried moving to Mount Pleasant for school, but I just couldn't seem to make it work. I love the people I'm surrounded by in Bay City. I love that I'm still close with my high school (John Glenn High School), and I know that due to their new superintendent their school systems are constantly being bettered. I love that I'm located so close to Euclid Road, a street filled with fast food places galore and other stores, and then Wilder Road crosses Euclid and is filled with stores such as Wal-Mart and our Bay City Mall. Plus, in Downtown Bay City we have tons of little stores, coffee shops, and restaurants! And in the summer we have tons of fairs and one of thee best fireworks displays! And in the winter, everyone heads over to Vets Park for a great day of sledding! Bay City is an involved and overall fantastic community to be a part of!
Lately on the Southend of Bay City there have been plenty of break ins into cars and homes. I'm on a Bay City Neighborhood Watch page on Facebook, so I do hear about quite a bit of crime in Bay City. In the 19 years that I've lived here, neither me, my mother, or my father have experienced any sort of crime. Right now however, it's just after Christmas time so our crime rate is slightly higher than usual.
When I was young I did't notice many problems but as I grew up I realized all the issues taking place, especially in light of recent events, such as a student getting shot in the leg at a bon fire. It is getting worse and worse in the Bay Area and I would not bring my future children here unless there where dramatic improvements.
