Living in the town of Bridgeville is better to me than when I used to live outside the town of Bridgeville. You are more closer to all the events that take place in Bridgeville. It is also a little safer because you are closer to your emergency places if needed. Lastly, because of how Bridgeville is structured your even closer to all the grocery store you need. Everything is more convenient around here.

Bridgeville is a great town full of opportunities for kinds to go to school especially high school students with the newly built high school! a very family oriented place.
I grew up in Bridgeville and attended the middle school before it switched buildings. If you have lived in this area most of your life the chance of almost everyone knowing you is highly likely. Their is also an annual Apple Scrapple Festival held every year that is a big hit. The town is known for the RAPA scrapple factory and the apple orchids owned by T.S Smith and Sons that provide apples to the local school. The only downfall if you live in certian areas of bridgeville the summer traffic for the nearby beaches get high in volume.
