I really like living in Bedford, this city is very laid back but also a really safe place to live and raise children as well! I really like how clean the area is, there is never a problem on trash being thrown around. There are many different city cars that drive around and keep everything that needs to be kept in order! I would advise anyone that is looking for a new home or a safe environment to live in, come and search Bedford! You will not be disappointed!
Review Bedford
Bedford is a family focused city. It is quiet here, I absolutely love living in Bedford. I've only been here for a few months, but I hope to stay for a long, long while. The major highway runs right through the city so its an easy drive to Fort Worth or Dallas. The local restaurants are delicious and timely. The shopping is wonderful and diverse. There's not much missing from here!
Bedford is a great small town, that has great schools and friendly people. There are a variety of restaurant and bars. The Boys Ranch has an amazing 4th of July show, plus many other year-round events!
