Milton and Georgia, Vermont are just small towns in the state. They don't offer much besides your basic local elementary schools and one high school. Other than those, there are limited stores and restaurants and you often find yourself driving to the nearest town which is 12 minutes away or to Burlington which is roughly 20-25 minutes away.

Milton is an up-and-coming town but still not much to do for the adolescent - young adult crowd. Lots to do for small children with outdoor activities. Wish Milton had a public pool or mini golf. Milton would vastly improve if a “town center” was created with a strip of shops, etc.. It’s a very beautiful town and great for farmers/owning a lot of land.
Let's just say I read the police reports in the newspaper for a laugh... not to see how in danger I am. Let me give you an example. A few weeks ago, my mother read me a "suspicious" report from our paper. It read something to the affect of, "Police received a call saying that yelling and slapping could be heard from the neighbor's house. Before police could investigate, another call was received from the same person saying that on second thought it could be cheering and clapping. Upon investigation, it was found that an NBA game was being watched, and it was indeed cheering and clapping."
