It's an average town in between two other amazing towns, Newport and Portsmouth. Newport is great for vacationing and draws a lot of tourists and Portsmouth is great for adventures!

My experience with living in Middletown has been excellent! You know a lot of the people who live here, its a small place but the people are all very friendly. One thing that I would change about middletown is the amount of things to do in the winter time. During winter time, things can become a little bit boring and stale, other than that, Middletown has been great.
Middletown has great schools as well as many things to offer in the summertime. From beaches, to hiking trails, to various summer camps, kids and families will never be bored. One other thing I love about Middletown is that the town gives everyone the chance to recycle by providing each home with a recycling barrel. Not only does this promote less trash in the community and local landfills, it also established good habits in younger generations, so no matter where they end up in their future, they already have experience recycling and have had the chance to build that habit.
