Just Awful - A town without hope
Member Name: PeterWalker
Advantages: Stand facing the sea and you can momentarily forget where you are.
Disadvantages: A town destined never to crawl out of the gutter.
Treat any rating above 1 star with some scepticism. It has almost certainly been posted by someone with something to gain from enticing people to this ghastly seaside town.
If you want a nice place where nice people visit and live, then this is not the place for you. This is not in doubt.
On the other hand, if you're looking for a tattoo, somewhere to walk your pitbull (but not too far in case you lose some weight), and fancy drinking in dingy pubs (with the bonus of scrapping in the streets afterwards), then this is definitely the place for you!!
You're guaranteed a hideously backward and tacky shopping experience, and to be rubbing shoulders with some choice characters. If passing through always dress down - the closer to the vagrant look the better. You dont want to stand out from the crowd.
If ever you're feeling down about where you live fear not, you can always visit Dawlish to remind yourself how lucky you are not to live there.
Summary: Do not ever think about moving here.
