Clovis is a wonderful town. It is the perfect size; it is small enough that it has a small-town feel but big enough that it has a lot of resources and things to do. It is generally pretty safe and has a very good school system. Inside Clovis is an area known as "Old Town Clovis", which has many antique stores, boutiques, and coffee shops, making it a great area for meeting up with friends. Also, since it is right in the middle of California, it is a reasonably short commute to the beach, mountains, and many other places inside the state. Overall, Clovis is a fantastic place to live!

Daughter is Kindergarten learning addition and subtraction. Teachers are so welcoming and encouraging to the students and make sure parents are always involve. If you live far from the school, mostly there would be a bus stop near by. Cops are very polite and efficient. Big hats day! And the farmers Market is to die for.
I have lived in Clovis for over 10 years, and apart from being in the scorch basin of the Central Valley it has been an enjoyable experience. A philosophy club I help run meets in Old Town Clovis every week for our meetings and we love sitting in the coffee shops discussing our topics, and then walking around the lovely stores and antique shops when we're done. Not to mention the excellent farmer's markets and the easy access to all kinds of fresh fruit. It may be hot during the summer, but there are enough positives to outweigh the heat.
