    Bridgman Michigan has been my home for a little over 12 years now, I love the people here, the beach, I wouldn't trade it for anything. Compared to other local communities, it doesn't have as high of a demand, but if you're looking for a nice community, with great local businesses, and a relaxing beach, but miles of dunes; Bridgman Is the place to be!

    We don't have many businesses in my small town with one stop light. We do have a local grocery store that does the job, along with a few small restaurants, completed with a subway, pizza hut, and mcdonalds
