Clifton is a very conservative town and more meant for elderly retired people that anything. My friends and I have always referred to it as a retirement town because at about 10 at night everything seems to shut down, similar to a ghost town. Not much fun stuff to do but we do have a movie theatre. The school is fairly decent and the jobs are low pay but easy to get. The people are exactly like every other small town group, gossipy and two-faced. Many, many churches throughout the town.
I was born and raised in Clifton. I am so glad that I got to grow up in such a nice small town. Everyone knew everyone. Clifton has a bunch of stores that made it easy to get products on a last minute notice without having to drive to the nearest city. The schools, banks, hospital, churches, and restaurants were all close in proximity which made it convenient. The crime rate is very low. I would 10/10 recommend Clifton to a friend if they were thinking about moving there.
I like that it is not busy with traffic but there really is not that many people living here. Schools campuses are relatively new and all of the campuses are near each other so getting the kids to school is no hassle. Commutes to work in town are very short but not many jobs for teens.
