I have been a Delaware resident for my whole life. I have lived in Clayton since I was seven, and it is a pleasure being apart of such a small town. Even though it is small, it makes the people living here very close-knit. People working at your favorite fast food chain may recognize you as “the regular,” and you familiarize with them because of the smile and small talk every time you go there. There’s a bond you develop with your hometown and others who grew up in it with you. The kind of town I live in is the one that creates a memory that makes you still feel like you are home when you are thousand of miles away.
I've lived in Clayton for about 10 years now. Originally as a kid I have moved around a lot so I've experienced many different type of town settings. I can truly say that I have never felt more comfortable and at home than I do here. The sense of community in the town of Clayton is very unique, and they have a large amount of community events every week in order to create that feeling. Everyone here is super friendly and the commute is not bad. Everything is affordable and family friendly and the public schools do a good job at furthering the education for the incoming youth.
Clayton, DE is a very chill location and semi-rural. Not much goes on around but parades and events take place every once and awhile. Grocery stores and food places are easily accessible. There is not much to do but from living here my whole life, I consider Clayton a safe place to live.
