Bridgeton is a pretty diverse town with an awesome school district. That's what I love the most about this town. St. Louis is a pretty divided city but Bridgeton defeats the odds. Another good thing is the amount of shopping and restaurants. There is both a Walmart and Target, and an abundance of restaurants. New stores and commerce pops up all the time.
Review Bridgeton
It's not the worst place to live, and some of the people are very nice, but it isn't the safest place either. It's not the kind of neighborhood where it's safe to let your children walk around at night.
Great city services, friendly neighbors, good schools. Lots of choices of restaurants and shopping opportunities.
