Main Street of the South Shore
Bridgewater’s reputation as the Main Street of the South Shore is well-deserved: On the west side, the traditional King Street shopping district is home to locally owned shops, restaurants, and services that are dedicated to quality and charm. Meanwhile, on the east side of the LaHave River, you’ll find the Bridgewater Mall, Eastside Plaza and a number of retailers to meet all your needs.

Annual events, including the South Shore  Exhibition, Afterglow Art Festival, South Shore in Motion, Canada Day on the LaHave, and Christmas on the LaHave provide spectacle and a taste of Lunenburg County for all. For those with canine companions, don’t miss the South Shore Vet Dog Zone, our dog park on Glen Allan Drive. And, if you have a love of boats, you’ll want to visit the waterfront Bridgewater Marina on LaHave Street.
