Milton is a fairly small town, that is getting some exciting developments such as a new bar hangout, new sidewalks and streetlamps, and a new park. Milton is considered a "bedroom" town, so there is not much to do around here, but people are nice and there is a friendly community, as it is common to see people we know all over the place. Our governmental representatives don't speak for everyone, however, and I would like to see more liberal legislators represent Milton. The legislators we have now are not committed to fighting climate change, they don't respect women's right to their own bodies, and they don't support the LGBTQ+ community as much as they should.

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.
