Bedford Township Reviews

9 reviews
All Categories
The experience here is fantastic for the rural/small town lover who likes the outdoors. The town is the best in there area, with a 5 star resort that brings in tourists to see the Historic side of Bedford from the revolutionary war period. The history of this place is off the charts and that's half of what makes it special. The other half is the many small shops and businesses that love to serve you and always make you feel welcome. The dining is the best in the area and I would never leave if I could find a job in my major here
Review Bedford Township
When I think of Bedford, crime does not come to mind. It's not often that you see crime stated in the newspaper and rarely, if ever, see crime in real time in Bedford area. It's a very safe place, overall, well-lit town, and police are seen very frequently; probably more frequently than most areas.
Bedford County has a lot to offer people of all ages - leisure activities, the great outdoors, unique town shops and great food; all in one little area!
