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.

The location of this area is nice in the sense that it is located near a lot of different restaurants, stores, parks, etc. Although, after visiting other states I would not choose this location to live in permanently.
