Middlesex Borough has a small-town aesthetic while still being able to offer many opportunitites. The town itself is only two square miles, but it has many unexpected places, for example the town has three different grocery stores, multiple hair salons, and over 30 restaurants. The community is very close-knit, and everyone is part of a "Middlesex Family."

Middlesex is a small homely town. Almost everyone knows each other. Everyone in town is so nice and kind to one another. The schools here offer great opportunities for the students. There are a few fast food places such as Wendy's, McDonald's, and Dunkin Donuts. I think Middlesex just needs a larger shopping place.
Middlesex is a very clean, positive environment. There are very friendly people and very diverse. The school I go too is very good also. I go to Middlesex High School. I feel safe and there is always someone to go to in a time of need. There is not that many job opportunities though. It would be great to have more jobs available. Other than that, Middlesex is a very postie environment and would definitely recommend!
