Clifton is a very small town in between Grand Junction and Palisade. Like every place you go to or live, Clifton has its ups an downs, its good and bad areas but, overall its a great small community. Clifton has Lots of diversity but also lots of things people could have in common. For me personally, I haven't been around all of Clifton or really talked to many people in other neighborhoods but for what I hear and could tell, Clifton is kind of like one big family from all different kinds of backgrounds but live in this great small little town.
I moved here from Utah when I retired and I find this to be a very relaxing, quiet and peaceful place to live. People are very friendly, the weather is great and the cost of living is low. Nice tax break for 60+ as well. I'm very happy here.
The town overall isn't bad however I would like to see the crime rate decrease. The school administration isn't the best but the teachers were wonderful. I have a lot of bad experiences here and excited to move and see something new. Clifton has some sort of glumly cloud over it that traps people here and you cant become much in a small town like this.
