Milton, Georgia, is a vibrant suburban community situated north of Atlanta in the northern most part of Fulton County. With its unique blend of modern amenities and natural beauty, it has become an attractive place to live for a wide range of residents, becoming one of the most-sought after Metro Atlanta surburbs in Georgia.
Incorporated in 2006, Milton has a new city hall, a stately traditional structure adjacent to the town green. Boasting a population of 40,000 and counting, Milton provides a serene escape from the bustling city while offering access to excellent schools and a strong sense of community.
The city has easy accessibility to Highway 9 and Route 372, which run through Milton, providing easy access to surrounding areas, including Ameris Amphitheater and North Point Mall in nearby Alpharetta. But Milton prides itself on the slower pace of life it offers, with a network of horse, bike and pedestrian paths to give the city a small town vibe. With a rural character and abundant natural space, the city is dedicated to preserving local history and character.
Even though Milton is primarily residential in character, it has enough close-to-home shopping and dining spots to make it self-sufficient and very convenient. From family-friendly eateries to locally-owned boutiques and antique shops, residents will find plenty of services and amenities.
Milton fosters a strong sense of community with its various events and activities throughout the year. Residents can partake in local festivals, farmers' markets, and cultural events that showcase the city's vibrant spirit. Additionally, the city is known for its commitment to education, making it an ideal place for families.
Milton was once part of Alpharetta and the two municipalities remain good friends. In 2012, a negotiated agreement was penned which allows residents of either community to use the parks and recreation facilities of the other without paying additional nonresident fees. While Milton is a relatively young city, it has quickly gained recognition for its quality of life. Named after Revolutionary War hero John Milton, the community's dedication to preserving its historical roots, combined with its forward-thinking approach to development, has contributed to its status as a desirable place to call home.
