I have lived in Milton for the majority of my life. Granted milton is not the cheapest, but it is definitely money well spent. Milton is an extremely friendly town and for updates they even have their own town Facebook group. Milton focuses on the kids and have a variety of different parks and sports for younger children to play.

Been in Milton for four years and couldn't be happier. Great sense of community, great schools, and quiet neighborhoods right at the edge of Boston. Also, the FruitCenter -- enough said.
The Milton Public schools are fantastic. Its quite a safe town, I never feel scared to go out at night. The cost of living is a little pricey but well worth it in such a family friendly and diverse neighborhood. A 15 minute train ride into Boston is another great perk of living in the town as well as the abundance of public parks and playgrounds. There is always something to do in Milton!!
