Falmouth is overall a put together town. For instance, everyone puts there part into cleaning and making sure that it is safe and opening to everyone. I have had times where I would be asked where I live and people would look at me and exclaim that its the "rich' people town. I wouldn't go as far to say that but Falmouth residents always put there part in to make it look spectacular. If I had to change anything, I would like the town to be more social and less stuck up with who they talk to. I envision my perfect town to come together as a community and be more social.

Falmouth is a safe, affluent town that is best described as a pleasant suburbia with great proximity to Portland. The school system is top-notch and is an idealistic place for children to grow up. The main downside to Falmouth would be the lack of diversity both cultural and socio-economically. Children usually come out of Falmouth in a good position with many opportunities, but also very sheltered.
Falmouth is a pretty well off town, which comes with ups and downs. It's a very safe location and has one of the top schools in Maine. The kids and people can be a bit snooty as a result of their privilege and the town isn't very well cultured, but it's an accepting and picture-esk location. The town is split up into a couple sections: Central Falmouth, the east side, the foreside, and West Falmouth. Central Falmouth is like where the school and such are, east side is mostly flat land and the country club, the foreside is where the rest of the stores are and there's water access (and most of the older homes), and West Falmouth is kinda the "big homes in the middle of nowhere" part of town. Generally a nice place to live but you really have to go into Portland to find anything interesting to do.
