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.
Whether you are a tourist or a resident, Middletown is a fantastic place to be for many reasons. The welcoming atmosphere of the town is enough to make anyone feel at home. With people from across the globe, Middletown is a very open community and is constantly having events that brings the community together. The schools offer aid for all children and will ensure that they are on the path to success and provide a fantastic foreign exchange program. Due to police which patrol the neighborhoods of Middletown, it is a very safe and family friendly neighborhood. The crime rate is incredibly low, even at night.
