The Lakeside area is a unique experience. While the expat community in some Mexican locales keeps to themselves, at Lakeside, the community is cohesive and friendly. Founded in 1955, the LCS eases the transition to living in Mexico with information on a wealth of topics. In addition, it is the focus for activities of all kinds. Its extensive lending library in English includes Talking Books and movies on DVD. And its community outreach program, including English, computer and art classes for local children, encourages newcomers to get involved.
Two American Legion Posts, the Lakeside Little Theater, choral groups and churches with services in English make for a richly satisfying lifestyle even if you don't speak Spanish. In addition, three English language newspapers and magazines are published locally. For those who take time to learn Spanish, life can be even more enriching.
