Seniors Come To Bridgeport

1788698_f496There are many things I do not know about our great country, like all the major cities in the US. I checked this AM and discovered that in Connecticut, was Bridgeport. Senior travelers, let’s check Bridgeport, Connecticut out.

Bridgeport is the most populous city in the state of Connecticut. Located on the Pequonnock River and Long Island Sound, the city had a population of 144,229 in the 2010 Census. The city is the core of the Greater Bridgeport area and part of the Greater New York City Combined Statistical Area.

History has played an important part in the development of Bridgeport. Bridgeport was first settled in 1665. The town was incorporated in 1821 from Stratford and Fairfield; the city was chartered in 1836, and the two were immediately consolidated.


Seniors Find Large City, Small Town Feel

Connecticut’s largest city is, in many ways, a small town with a sense of community, neighborhood spirit, and traditional values. In recent years, Bridgeport CT has undergone a revitalization and is now home to the Bridgeport Bluefish, the University of Bridgeport and the headquarters of People’s Bank.

I think I would enjoy spending some quality time at the Discovery Museum and Planetarium. The Discovery Museum functions as both a tourist attraction featuring science and space science exhibits and as an informal science education center.
