Bangor Reviews

11 reviews
All Categories
Generally safer and more inviting than the rest of the Bay City area. Not much for outdoors enthusiasts, but there is a rail trail system that encompasses most of the Great Lakes Bay region. The Bay City State Park is a place I often visit to walk, bike or jog. The majority of the township is residential and your average establishments- grocery stores, car sales lots, churches and fast food- but most of the homes are very well kept and most of the natives are friendly, educated and/or hard working people.
Review Bangor
I live in the community of Bangor but because the school district here isn't very progressive, when I was in the 2nd grade my parents transfered me to a school district close to us, South Haven Schools. I continue to attend at South Haven and will graduate from South Haven also. Many members of the community are very poor and many do not work. I will not return to live here after college graduation. My parents live here but both work in other cities nearby.
It's a small, quiet town. It doesn't have much to offer for entertainment, but other cities near by do.
