Why are there no walkable bridges in the Sims 4? How can you fully enjoy the charm of a stroll by a river or lake if you are forbidden from crossing even the smallest of bridges? And the water? Shouldn’t you, on a hot day, at least be able to dip your toes in?
Say hello to BridgeView city, where the center of town in graced by a modern bridge that is not only crossable but with its multiple tiers and surrounding park, provides plenty to do on a sunny day. There is an upper deck for sunning yourself and taking in the romance of the city lights or even enjoying a soothing game of chess with your bestie. The lower deck is enclosed with windows all around allowing, you to enjoy the scenery from your table without being ruffled by the elements. Get yourself something from the bar, have a snack or dance to a favorite tune. There's always something for you on the lower deck.
Oops, did I forget to tell you about the tower? There's a, not so secret, staircase up there. Once you reach the top you will find yourself in private room with a fireplace and a balcony to look up at the stars from.
But it's still early and the stars are not yet out. The sun is still warm and a gentle breeze is stirring, A walk in the park is in order. Pause to smell the flowers. Turn your steps around the corner and away from the city streets. An easel is waiting for you to try your hand at painting the beauty around you. Maybe a snooze under the trees is what you are looking for, or an occasion to show off your musical skills. It's all there waiting for you under the bridge.
You pause, your eyes on the gently rippling water of BridgeView lake. Oh, so welcoming, it beckons you nearer. Go ahead, dip your toes the water.
How about a swim?
The water is so alluring, but you wouldn't want to mess your outfit. Head to the convenient dressing room and rest room at the foot of the bridge and get yourself ready to make a splash.
After your tour of the bridge, feel free to visit the city of BridgeView. We are a compact town with plenty to do. Feel like going shopping? You can stop at Antler Clothiers and try on the latest fashions. How about stopping at the gym for a workout or a touch of yoga?
Maybe that swim was on the tiring side and you're feeling a bit achy. There's a massage therapy office. Step right in. There is no line.
Maybe afterwards you will want to check out the Art gallery and grab a little culture to go?

Like its neighbor, Subway City, BridgeView City is miniature city in one lot. Your Sim family can live and work here. It can also be used as a venue or a travel destination.
If you would like your Sim to both reside in this lot as well as work there, you will need to have your Sim first purchase an empty lot (which will serve as their home base to the game), and then purchase the BridgeView City lot, so they can move in and set up shop. Remember to lock the doors on buildings you prefer your customers not wander into, this way you will have a better chance of getting more customers into your store.
To take better advantage of the city, install a larger family and split the members between the two houses so they can act as separate families. The members can work in the different businesses in the city as well as out of it. Beyond inviting friends, owning store, will increase the city population during business hours and make it feel even more like a real neighborhood.
