To borrow a phrase from the Clifton Chamber of Commerce, “It’s a Great Life . . . When You Live It in Clifton!” Located in south central Bosque County at the north end of the beautiful Texas hill country, Clifton is unabashedly described as a fantastic place for families. While the opportunity to raise a family in a value-rich setting of growth, prosperity, excellent schools, and a pleasant way of life keeps many of us here, Clifton’s low crime rate, excellent health care facilities, beautiful parks and playgrounds make it a place to “just kick back” and enjoy the place and the people who live here. Newcomers are enthusiastically welcomed to make themselves part of a vibrant rural community that's been blessed with a rich cultural heritage.

Called “a jewel in the rough” by the Texas Historical Commission, the City of Clifton is a great community. Strengths and assets include the people, the multicultural heritage, the natural beauty of the area, the great location, the Bosque River, a progressive atmosphere, churches, a hospital and clinic and other healthcare service providers, a strong school district, and many active service organizations.

Visit and ask us about life in Clifton, but be prepared to spend awhile. We think you’ll want to come back to stay and we don't mind sharing the reasons!
