Setting & Lifestyle
Because of many things, Bishop is a very good place for families to consider.

Is Bishop perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly place to live.
Bishop is a small town, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
