Clinton is a town in Central Massachusetts. It borders Boylston, Lancaster, Bolton, Berlin and Sterling but all of those towns are a lot nicer than Clinton. As a result, most of the areas on the outskirts of Clinton are nice. However, the center of town is very ugly and run-down looking. It’s kind of like a bad town surrounded by nice towns. They have decent schools and a very low crime rate but I suspect that they have a fairly high amount of crime but no one reports it. It just doesn’t look like that safe of a place. They do have some nice houses but a lot of the houses and buildings here are run down looking and there are shady people and shady vans in this town.

My time has a high spirit for unity. They have a facebook page where people ask for help from moving to food and people help all the time. Everyone will say hello to anyone. During the pandemic our pantry stayed open and distributed food to anyone! I am very happy I moved away from the big city where no one knew my name to this town where everyone is a friend.
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.
