Town in southeast massachusetts, sandwiched between fall river and new bedford. The area is mostly known for over emphasizing the importance of high school basketball and football. Most of the best players are idolized and turned into local celebrities and then never amount to much in the rest of their lives. On the other hand, they have a great music department, and a beautiful harbor and many beautiful beaches. In the north side of town there are housing projects, a mall, and a very commercialized district that stretches a few miles.
ex: A: "Dartmouth, Massachusetts? Yea, Ryan and Norm used to be so good"
B: "Yea, I know. What are they doing now?"
A: "Who cares. Probably nothing."

a shitty town in southern mass near fairhaven and new bedford. its local government is controled by the few rich. known as the "rich" town in the area, yet the only rich area is padanaram. Panagakis is developing every inch of land in the North end, putting up box like structures all over the place that stay empty for decades, and the mall is not even worth going to. the school system used to be great, people came from all over the area so their kids could get a decent education. now the school department and the whole town is strapped for cash and the kids are suffering. locals are very close everyone seems to know everyone and gossip is frequent. everyone dreams of getting out of here but no one ever does. its only in the news for some new scandel, most recently involving the prom. overall not as great a town as everyone thinks
person 1: wow im getting out of Dartmouth, Massachusetts

Person 2: yeah like that is ever gonna happen... hey did you hear what happened at the prom?
