Bay County Reviews
I love the downtown area. It has a nice atmosphere and a lot of little shops. The view of the river is nice, although I wish the water was cleaner. There are nice local eateries. Crime isn't horrible and I feel safe here.
Good nightlife, good school system. The roads need work, downtown is very up beat. The city plans something every weekend during the summer month.
Its a small county with big county feels. It includes the typical farm fields but also has good night life.
