Bridgeville Reviews

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.

Bridgeville is a small town with a country feel. While it does seem safer than other towns in Delaware, there is a lack of family fun activities to attend.
