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.

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.
