Bridgeport, CT is the largest city in Connecticut yet it is still quite small. I first visited the city on a school field trip years ago and late returned in 2009 with my wife. I was pleasantly surprised to see that Bridgeport had lifted its image and become a center for diverse and exciting activities from sports events to festivals!
Apparently Bridgeport, CT has over 2.5 million visitors a year which is something you would hardly notice when visiting. With such a large amount of tourism each person is sure to have their own opinion but for me I know one of my favorite locations in Bridgeport was a restaurant called Baldwin Plaza. Right in the middle of downtown off the main street is a beautiful, friendly and green plaza where you can go for a picnic, walk the dog or play Frisbee with the kids! Its a truly wonderful place where a certain harmony is achieved between visitors and residents of Bridgeport.
Bridgeport is filled with a wide variety of restaurant options although you will find the most readily available meal is seafood! Seafood makes sense since Bridgeport has the feel of a "Harbor Town" is very rich with its sea-faring past! Bridgeport would be perfect if there was a little more nightlife but unfortunately the city seems to sleep after 9pm; wich is great for families!
