Avon's a small town. Once you pass the Brockton city line, you're basically in Randolph already. The school system is tiny and overlooked most of the time. The people, however, are ones to build relationships with. Because of Avon's size, it's like everyone in Avon is already a family. You could take through the neighboorhood and talk to someone walking their dog for hours. We are neighbors with everyone, which means we're the best town in my book.

I like that Avon is a small town and there's a Walmart, a mall, more than enough Dunkin' Donuts, and pizza shops that are less than a 10 minute drive from where ever a person lives. I just wish there was more to do, but if you like a nice and quiet neighborhood, this is the place to live while only living less than 30 minutes from the city.
Avon is a small town, so almost everybody knows everybody. People are always looking out for each other. In recent years there have been many more efforts to get people involved in the community. Overall, it's a good place to both grow up and raise a family.
