I love the town of Bridgewater, small, everything close, a college town, there a various small shops along with well known restaurants and fast food joints.
I have lived in Bridgewater for over 3 years. I lived right near the college it is a great place to live. The center has everything you need from good take out food to sit down resturants, along with great shopping places like Burlington Coat Factory.
Grew up in this small college town. Over the years it has been growing along with the college. More people= more traffic, but the town has done a pretty good job keeping up with the increase in population.
The most prevalent crime in the area is rape allegations on the campus of Bridgewater State University. During the past school year, police were very present and campus security was tightened down severely. While rape allegations did not cease entirely, they did decrease after campus police and the town police department were more present and offered more services for rape victims
Bridgewater is a great place for children to live! The town has a pretty young population and sports teams do very well. Everyone is very friendly here and overall it is just a very welcoming place to live!
a pretty safe area, not much crime
Safe environment but not much to do
People are friendly and helpful
Although there is a prison nearby people rarely escape. Crime is very low mostly its just domestic disputes that get police in the area.
This area is very aesthetically pleasing and safe, however there is an issue with the kids in the area and drug usage. Another issue is there are very few new businesses, or employment opportunities in general around here, as it is mainly residential.
Not really sure about the crime rate. Seems safe enough
It's a nice quiet suburb. I'd like to see more young adult activities other than sports. There's also not slot of diversity in businesses. I'd also like to see the school ground better maintained. Most people are friendly and helpful.
I feel very safe here, the crime rate seems pretty low and most crimes that are committed are not extremely serious, and the police are very attentive and responsive.
I would absolutely live here again, the atmosphere is very safe, clean, and comfortable. I think this is a great part of the country with great jobs, colleges, and other services. I would definitely want to live here in comparison to countless other places in the country. I think Massachusetts in general has a promising future.
Some neighborhoods are more friendly and engaged than other (i.e. if you live on a main road, I wouldn't count on knowing your neighbors as well)
Very safe area to live in
Loved living here & definitely hope to move back one day

Good school system that is only getting better

Safe town to live in & raise a family
It's a very quiet and beautiful village. The office also provides good service for the tenants.
It is easy to get across town but there is frequently traffic due to the college.
The police respond quickly but there is still crime in town. Mostly to do with drugs.
