Clinton Is known or retirement friendly city,but it isn’t much more than that. The school system is great and a 95%+ graduation rate. I attended the Clinton public school oil system and went to a 4 year college on an academic scholarship. Is not that big of a town so it’s very friendly because you know your neighbors and friends that live nearby you. The variety of fast food restaurants are very nice. Very nice buildings and safe environments! I would recommend coming here to visit!

Clinton is a very friendly small-town type city. It is an auxiliary of Jackson known best for its excellent school system and safety. My family and I moved here from Florida this past June 2019. I am currently in the Masters' program at Mississippi College, and so far, we love it here!
To me Clinton could improve I'm many areas. Although we have very nice neighborhood, parks, and schools we lack in other areas. Most people residing in Clinton work in surrounding cities such as Ridgeland, Flowood, or Pearl and have trouble finding jobs here. If you want to go shopping or go to a nice restaurant you have to leave this city to find that. Most young people that live here are itching to move somewhere else since it is quite boring.
