A depressing and pointless town in Somerset, UK.

All the shops are closing down in the town centre, leaving Taunton looking like a ghost town.

Even though most think it is a sucky city, we do have some nice places and some people who live here a generally nice. There are a few rotten people but their just from the center of the city.

Nice and pleasant small city 40 miles south of Boston. Contrary to other posts Taunton is an extremely safe city with a low crime rate. Its overall crime rate is well below the national average in every category. In fact crime is lower than cities its size such as Barnstable(Cape Cod) and Haverhill among other Massachusetts cities. No Ghettos!! These people need to drive 90 miles to Springfield or Holyoke to see "ghettos". This is Not an impoverished city like Holyoke or Lawrence. Convenience stores don't have bullet proof glass and No bulletproof drive-throughs at fast food joints. It might be a crappy place to some in comparison to the surrounding rural towns but to most its an above average small city.

A good city south of Boston. It may have it's bad points, but it is a city full of culture and history. Mainly influenced by Portuguese, Cape Verdian, and other ethnicities, it is a good place to live. There are always events going on for the different age groups in the area. If you don't live here, you don't know what it's like to live in Taunton.
Person 1: You live in Taunton?! That must be hell with all the gangs!

Person 2: Personally, I've never seen any real gang violence in person. It's a nice place to live.

where your dreams never come true. its full of lost hope. if your not leaving after high school im sure your not going to. the roads suck, ever inch you go is another pot hole. it has the highest drop out rate around. every month another teen girl is pregnant. if your from here you know whittenton and east taunton kids never got along , and probably never will. you know everyones looking foward to go to the Portuguese feasts. there soo called gangs , cause kids have no life. Everyone dreads going to Morton when something happens they rather drive to Brockton. All people every think about is how to get high next. Or who there robbing to get money. Kids talk like they were raised by a bunch of money e.x "yoo dogg what the ______ good my _____ ."
No one can mind there business , its like whos life can we ruin next.
