Three road crossings in the municipality are heavily congested during the rush hours: Lolomboy, Wakas, and Bocaue road crossings.
The house of the national hero and poet Gat Francisco Balagtas Baltazar y Dela Cruz is located in Bigaa. His house was been remodeled by the Philippine Historical Committee (now National Historical Commission of the Philippines) in 1949.
