Bridgewater is a thriving town nestled in the heart of the LaHave River Valley. Known as the “Mainstreet of the South Shore”. Known as the “Mainstreet of the South Shore”, Bridgewater is strategically located with ample amenities to serve its role as a regional commercial centre. Residents enjoy a small town quality of life with convenient access to a wealth of recreational opportunities.
I have been living on the South Shore for 10 years and am a native Nova Scotian with a true love of this beautiful province. Our towns are fairly small and friendly (ranging form a few thousand to approximately 8,000 in Bridgewater) and also equipped with all the amenities necessary for comfortable living. You are never more than an hour from the ocean and Lakes and rivers abound. Whether it is sea breezes, bold ocean front, community living in one of our great towns, or country living you seek, you will not be disappointed.
