Fantastic suburb of Atlanta! Excellent schools, beautiful homes, feels like the country with equestrian estates and tree lined roads. Includes the quaint Crabapple commercial district and broader Windward area shopping and office space.

We moved to Milton from Johns Creek 4 years ago. And although we only moved 12 miles, there is a huge difference in the two towns. We found Johns Creek to be congested, little green space, and houses built on top of each other, which created horrible traffic. Milton feels like a small town, with small town charm, yet only 30 minutes from Buckhead. Not only does it have some of the best schools in the South, the fall is all about High School football. Whether you live in one of Milton's farms, or in a neighborhood, you never feel congested. And if we can keep the right folks in city hall, high density building won't destroy all we love here.
I liked the fact that there are places where I can go and hangout, and make friends. My high school is a great learning environment that is a place where there students have succeed outside of the classroom as well. There are many job opportunities that exist for students as well as others to get a fun and exciting job and a mom and pop shop. One thing that I would change is the track flow, there are a few places most notability, Round-a-bout at Birmingham Highway, and at the intersection at city hall. All in all Milton is a great community where teens, and young adults are molded into the next innovators of our country.
