Seekonk is a lovely town! From the school system to the community in general, everyone is so sweet. Seekonk is a very clean town with very little bad things happening especially compared to other towns/cities. I also feel very safe in Seekonk. I could go outside for a walk and feel safe.

Seekonk is a small, "New Englandy" type of town. Seekonk has a great school system, and it seems just about everyone wants to live here. The elementary schools are currently experiencing a bit of overcrowding, but the town just voted to increase their capacity. The nightlife here is average, typically most people will find themselves on Route 6 where all the shopping and restaurants are. Depending on where you're going, commute time can vary. Boston typically takes an hour, and Providence about 15 minutes. There is little to no crime in Seekonk, albeit for the occasional car accident. The town is primarily a white community, with minorities accounting for less than 20% of the population. Most of the jobs in town are in the small businesses, along Route 6, or working for the town. There are plenty of volunteer activities throughout the year.
Not that kind of white town that Afro Man discussed in Crazy Rap Song (colt. 45), but mostly white. Learning is alright, but our elementary school is small, and needs to be made bigger to accommodate for more students. Not a bad place to grow up in, but its very sheltered, and superficially PC. The m e m e culture is meh, and the floors leak a lot. It's quiet accept for holiday seasons because we're between Pawtucket Stadium and Seekonk Speedway. So fire works DO EXIST.
