We are moving this year and looking for a nice, small town in Eastern Mass. I cannot determine what the difference is between these two communities. Any opinions? Thanks for any information.

Actually, you have West Bridgewater, Bridgewater, and East Bridgewater. With Brockton abutting both the West and East Bridgewater communities, it really doesn't matter which you pick, the bad element is right around the corner.

Bridgewater may be the best choice since you have the MBTA stop there if you need train access to Boston.

Have you thought about other communities like Easton or Mansfield/Foxboro area?

Bridgewater does have some conveniences that E Bridgewater does not. State College, tons of restaurants, MBTA with access to Boston and surrounding towns. The down side is the school system is a wreck and the town services leaves a lot to be desired. My choice would be E Bridgewater

Thanks for the info. I have also been looking at Mansfield, Middleboro, Foxboro, Wrentham, Easton and Franklin. We were originally attracted to Bridgewater because of the college, since I teach. My husband will be working in Newport, RI and I am looking for a nice town between there and Boston. There are so many great looking towns that it is overwhelming. I appreciate any commentary you care to share.
