There are more than twenty Middletowns in the United States, but Middletown, Ohio may be the fairest one of all. Builders in this city favor multi-level traditional brick homes with a suburban appeal. Add a white picket fence and your home will be a model for the American dream. For some homes, you'll need a rather large fence if you plan to enclose all of the included land acreage, but many homes are close enough to where you can borrow a cup of sugar from your neighbor without having to set out on a voyage and pack a lunch.
