West Yarmouth is like home. There is good and bad like anywhere else. Are there too many broke down buildings just waiting waiting for squatters to settle? Of course. But are there amazing small businesses and a great school? Yes, of course. The police department is amazing and really does a thorough job of keeping the roads of Yarmouth safe.

All of the towns on Cape Cod have their own unique feel but I love West Yarmouth the most as I live there! It's a pretty quiet, fun and great area to live.
There isn't much diversity, which is to be expected from living on the cape. Most people act as if they haven't ever seen a jewish person in their life, probably because they haven't.
