Milton is a very safe and diverse area with great schools, great for families! I have lived here for 5 years and have only good things to say. Milton has a small town feel with large city resources. The job market is booming and opportunities are endless. It is driving distance, about 30 minutes, to the major city of Atlanta.

Milton GA. An even wealthier suburb of Atlanta, smaller city/town of inside the city of Alpharetta, where the kids drive nicer cars than most adults and the adults don't drive. Jeeps are also seen EVERYWHERE. Milton High School has everything from their preps to the stoners. Their school also looks like a college campus. No good places to chill. Most end up at North Point Mall, fishing, off-roading, relaxing in Miltons fine houses with hot tubs/pool tables/pools/indoor movie theaters, and eating at all the good places. Chick-fil-a is the fast food of choice and the other popular spots are Taco-Mac, Jimmy Johns, and Menchies. They can definitely be stereotyped. White, rich, Christian, and part redneck.
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.
