In terms of jobs in Middletown, there are not many desirable or well paying positions available, at least for college students. Any jobs within Middletown for college students are limited to working at Safeway, CVS, or one of the restaurants. I have been able to find a job that I somewhat enjoy (though I only get paid minimum wage for fixing computers) at Office Depot. Unfortunately, I have to travel a somewhat long distance for a minimum wage job, about 15 miles each way, or a 30 mile round trip.

The landscape of the valley is gorgeous, and the area in the immediate vicinity is mostly rural. There are a few different recreational parks in town, and there is a very nice nature center a few miles outside of town, though it isn't uncommon to find it inaccessible due to road conditions.

Crime is barely noticeable around Middletown. There are occasional problems with substance abuse in the high school, at least when I attended, but very little to no violent crime.
