I am a current resident of Biddeford, Maine. I have lived here for a few months, but worked in Biddeford for two years before moving here. I live on the outskirts of town in a nice area. Biddeford is a great up and coming town. There are several shops and restaurants in the town, and the town is working hard to restore their image. It is also conveniently close to the highway, route one, and the beach. It is a fairly good town to live in if you don't mind being in a moderately busy area.
Biddeford use to be a small mill town that everyone knew everyone. As the years have past, Biddeford lost the mill and many people lost their jobs which resulted in many families leaving. Now people are coming back as they are trying to build Biddeford back to its glory. Biddeford has come a long way and has plenty of history.
Biddeford has its nice parts and its not so nice part just like any other city. It has a lot of different things to do such as an indoor play yard for little children to bars for some adult time fun. There are some amazing restaurants, from Chinese to burger joints.
