Lots of people decide to start college at a community college. The location is convenient, tuition and fees are modest, and most may not yet know what they want to major in. If you're in this position, community college is a great choice AND it can be a successful springboard to a four-year-college or a university.
You can earn up to half the credits for a bachelor's degree at a community college. You just have to make sure that credit for the courses you take there can be transferred to the four-year schools you are considering.
