Bridgewater is nestled in the LaHave River Valley. Tree covered slopes and fertile drumlin hills made this an ideal location for settlement to grow and prosper. The changing of the tide is evident by the exposed rocks when the tide is out. Something most rivers do not experience. As this is the longest river in the province going inland almost 100km from sea to its furthest point. You will find that Bridgewater offers a variety of visitor services, accommodations, restaurants, parks and museums, hospital facilities, a public library, sporting facilities, and more. You can enjoy Hiking, Biking, Walking, Golfing, Kayaking, Sight-seeing, Shopping, Exploring, Fishing, Sailing, or just relaxing. Most religious denominations are represented in our many churches.
