Milton is a small town and a relatively poor town. High school classes are around 150 students in size. There are some great local restaurants and pizza places to try! Besides eating out, there are not many options as far as entertainment.

I've lived in Milton, PA for almost my entire life. I went to their schools which participate in helping struggling families get food, volunteer in their town, and work to make sure every student graduates. The hometown is extremely commutable. Everything is within walking distance. There are plenty of small restaurants and personal businesses. The people in Milton are very proud of their town and its history.
I love the tight-knit community of Milton. Most people in this town know each other and are very friendly overall. The biggest problem with Milton that I would like to see change is the lack of activities. There is very little to do in this town, as many of us go to neighboring towns to have a good time.
