Bridgeport is a very safe area. There is hardly any crime, and it is very quiet. I really enjoyed attending Bridgeport High School as well. The school really helped prepare me for college. Also, Bridgeport is not that far from a great University. I love Saginaw Valley State University. Something that I would like to see change would be there needs to be a few activities and more restaurants around.

In the Bridgeport area, we have Kroger as our main grocery store and plenty of fast food restaurants. There's really no family owned stores. There's mainly stores that we all know, such as Rite Aid, Hungry Howies, Family Dollar, etc. We do have a locally owned photography studio called Hillier Studios that are highly priced. The favorite place of mine in this area is the Historical Society (That's where I got married).
The thing I like most is I made some of the best friends I have ever had while growing up. The thing I would like to see change is more things for the kids and teenagers to do.
