Situated in the Lakes Region, Bridgton, Maine is a beautiful small town with something to offer in every season. Camping, hiking, boating, and a nearby Blues Festival are just a few of the activities available during summer months. The fall brings apple and pumpkin picking, fairs, and scenic foliage, while winter affords plenty of opportunities for snowmobiling, skiing at Shawnee Peak, ice fishing, the Musher's Bowl, and more. The town also has many thriving restaurants, a movie theater and a Drive-In theater.

Bridgton is a wonderfully friendly town. We have lakes, camping, shopping, restaurants and a wonderful school department. People are super nice. I wish I had grown up her and started school in Bridgton but I moved here when I started High School. Great place to live for young and old familys.
Bridgton has made several improvements within the last several years. It is quaint, has several very nice local family owned businesses, and is within the lakes region. It is home to Shawnee Peak ski mountain, providing plenty of opportunity for winter recreation, and is also home to the Magic Lantern movie theater, which is one of the nicest movie theaters around, with a wonderful atmosphere.
