Bedford Reviews

2 reviews
The general atmosphere of Bedford county is friendly and very warming. The town is filled with small restaurants that allow you to try different things. All of the unique stores is something Bedford is known for. Although, as a high school student I want to get out and travel, Bedford is the best place to settle down with your family.
Review Bedford
It's a beautiful town. Very old and fun to talk around. Although the town is filled with racist's and close minded people.
