Milton is such a close knit community that strives and succeeds to be a great town. The proximity to Boston, Cape Cod and New Hampshire can't be beat. Within an hour you can be on a beach in Cape Cod, or Skiing in NH. The restaurant and night life scene has improved tremendously and the well known school systems are amazing

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.
