The overall experience of this area is average because the cost of living is very poor. The cost of living is poor because many families are working in low-wage jobs leading to insufficient income to live. The quality of life in this area is average because there is no progress within educational systems. Good education is very important to improve and find better jobs. In addition, there is not much to do since is a small town, but the people are very nice.

I personally have no desire to stay in Middletown because I want to travel and not be stagnant. The people here move slow. There is no hustle, so it could be described as peaceful. The best part of living here is that everything is a short drive or walk if you're willing, away
It is a great area because there are many nearby stores, supermarkets and restaurants. It is a growing area and I am happy to own property here.
