Great Small Town, historic places such as the Sailors home on the Back 9 Golf Club, and the 18th century colonial house in North Lakeville, diversity is limited, mainly Caucasian, with limited African American and other immigrant populations, Native Americans are mainly located in surrounding towns such as middleborough and Assonet, but small population in Betty's Neck, home of the Wampanoag Royal Cemetary. Great people, friendly community, only complaint would be one part of town located just east of East Taunton known as Pink Eye Village, great athletic and Academic programs, overall amazing town, well water, supplier of water to surrounding cities. Lots of summer and winter recreation in and around town, Home of Ocean Spray Cooperative Headquarters and also the famous Assawampsett Pond known for being the killing place of a Native American spy of the English sparking King Philips War, much history, fantastic Wilderness, lovely small town

Lakeville has a quaint, hometown feel and is very family-friendly. While the many lakes, parks, golf courses, and other outdoor attractions are great for the warmer spring/fall days and throughout the summer, there is very little going on during the colder winter months. Very few dining/shopping options present within the town (although adequate), but the location is central to many surrounding larger towns with more comprehensive options given a short (<20 min) drive. A great, quiet, and safe place to raise kids.
It's like living in the woods, driving to my campsite everyday. I love it! Some of the stores and shops are closed really early, but it gives it that small town feel.
