Great for families, very safe with great schools. Great proximity to Boston with some public transportation. High taxes and very few businesses. Not much to offer for single, young adults.

Been in Milton for all my life 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.
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.
