Milton GA is very unique and a special part of the Metro Atlanta area. Nowhere else is it possible to be close to the city, have outstanding schools, shopping and dining and live in a home with land at the values offered in Milton.
Milton was incorporated in December of 2006 along with the city of John's Creek out of the remaining unincorporated land in North Fulton County. Milton is best known for three things in particular; gracious country clubs, equestrian heritage and homes on more land than other areas.
Part of the attraction for living in Milton is that it allows residents to enjoy living in an area with a lower population density with less traffic and still remain within a reasonable commute to major Atlanta employment centers. Milton is very different than other areas of North Fulton due to its equestrian heritage and with that, Milton has a distinct "country" flavor. At the same time, Milton is literally minutes from one of Metro Atlanta's largest employment centers in Alpharetta and is a reasonable commute to the top end perimeter. This proximity to Alpharetta and the rest of north Atlanta allows residents to enjoy a daily escape from the fast paced life of the city while still being close enough for a reasonable commute and work life.
Milton offers great parks and recreation for families and superior schools for children helping to make Milton an excellent area to raise a family.
