Its a small town but a safe one. Anything that you could possibly need is within 5-10 minutes. We have two grocery stores, fast food, ice cream, drug stores, etc. If you are looking to go to a bar... We have plenty! Also, anything outside of the normal day to day activities are also just a short 15-20 minute drive away. It is a nice small town that is super safe and relatively clean.

My family has lived here four years and still feel we are treated as outsiders. This is a republican, blue collar, close knife community, almost too close; and if you did not grow up in this town, you often get dirty looks at local restaurants and community gatherings despite being friendly and saying hello. Some neighborhoods are nice, but a lot of people care more about their vehicles than their houses which can be frustrating as a home owner. Roads and sidewalks are not treated/plowed that well in the winter. It took years for a main road (Water St.) to be re-paved and half the time you cannot access the sidewalks as trucks are parked blocking the way. Positives: most parks are well maintained, the dam is a nice and overall, a safe place to walk. I wish the long time residents were more accepting of people who are new to town and I also wish that the infrastructure and roads were better kept.
I like the supportive community. People come together in time if need and parents care about other kids. The people out a lot of their time into sports and bettering fields for kids. I am fifth generation to live in Clinton, MA and I love it!
