Bridgewater is a nice, quiet college town and is not too far from Boston. There is not much to do in the town but the center of town is cute; However, it is not accessible for people with disabilities or wheelchair users. I would love to see the town become more accessible.
people here are kinda snobby but most people are alright. places to rent apartments and to buy houses are kinda expensive. there is alot of healthy places to eat food.
Great place to live! All different ethnicities and cultures during the school season, but slows down during the summer. Super accessible buy commuter rail and a nice center of town with shops and eateries.
Bridgewater is a beautiful farm town. It’s a large town land wise, however I would like to see the cluster building to stop. I feel the town is becoming overpopulated. This is affecting the local traffic as well as overcrowding our schools. I would prefer to perhaps see the building of one or two anchor stores with a shopping plaza rather than the numerous strip malls, tattoo shops, vape shops liquor stores that are all over town.
I have lived in Bridgewater all of my life and I can say that it is a great town to live in. I would recommend.
Nice little town, relatively friendly, clean, great schools... A little overcrowded due to the college and some overpopulation. 4/5.
My pastors lived in Bridgewater so I enjoyed all the activities that they would hold for a select few of the congregation inviting us out to their home beautiful area the home was beautiful the area was quiet nice even transitioning by vehicle through the community invited you to consider making it your home
Great town! Just needs some improvement to the the common and surrounding business district. Plenty of potential, just needs a good developer who has the interest of the town and it’s people at heart.
I’ve lived here my entire life, and have absolutely nothing to complain about. The neighborhoods are absolutely lovely, the police department is on top of everything, and there is a sense of real community.
School system is alright as-is, but is continually improving. Being a college town, it is relatively quiet when it comes to crime and disturbances.
I really like Bridgewater for the diversity of opportunities within the town. You have a good college and high school. As well. Yet, the crime rate has gone up in recent years. So I would like to see that go down without stressing out the rest of the town.
I've lived in Bridgewater for 2 years. It is a nice queit town situated on the outskirts of Boston. Bordered by beautiful towns like Lakeville, and just 30 minutes from Plymouth and Providence, Bridgewater provides proximity to areas of interest and just enough space to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Living in Bridgewater and working in Boston can be troublesome though, due to the traffic in the morning on route 24.
I love Bridgewater because you truly get a small hometown feel with a lot of the perks of living in a college town. For the most part it is quiet but there are times to expect traffic and busy-ness. This is generally during college move in, move out, springfest, and graduation. Also, annually for the fourth of july festivities that attracts neighboring towns. Other than that it is a small, safe, quiet town with plenty to do.
Bridgewater was a great town. The schools were okay. Teachers were always great. I always felt safe walking alone or into town. There are many great restaurants to eat at. There were not many activities to do for adults or older kids but there are a variety of activities for younger kids. There are many places to get coffee and donuts. The college is very nice an has a nice campus. The houses are nice and there are many nice neighborhoods to live in. Cars always obeyed speed limits and is an overall safe town.
I believe that the town of Bridgewater has incredible potential, filled with so many amazing individuals who are always willing to lend a hand and guide you in the right direction. It is one of the state's best kept secrets, practically in the middle of nowhere, with not much to do, except enjoy the scenery every now and again. There is a surplus of cafes and restaurants in town that serve as a source of entertainment at any given time of day.
It's alright. I've lived here my whole life and I don't really have anything bad to say about it, but I don't really have anything great to say about it, either. It's pretty ho-hum. A bit conservative for my taste, though, and we could do better in the diversity department.
Bridgewater is a good town. My neighbor just got a horse so that's a plus. College kids stole my basketball hoop once but that was only a one-time thing.
