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.
Review Milton
I love how downtown Alpharetta has become a smaller version of Atlanta. There are amazing restaurants and activities that take place in the downtown area, I do not have travel far distances to now experience luxury and aesthetically pleasing places. I do wish the places downtown would stay open later because everything usually closes by 9. Other than that, the scenery and places downtown are beautiful!
Milton is very expensive to live and keep up with the Joneses, it's all about money. More German cars here than domestic. No sense of community whatsoever. Subdivision living is it. Absolutely no night life, boring and overpriced restaurants. Money people here and no one cares about much, other than playing golf or tennis. Beautiful area, nice schools. Basically the boring burbs of Atlanta....rich young professionals trying to one up their neighbors.
