Those who retire in Milton, Georgia will find a charming new community, incorporated in 2006, about 20 miles north of Atlanta. Milton is a distinctive area that embraces small-town life and heritage while preserving and enhancing the city’s rural character. Known for its pastoral landscapes and tranquil spaces, Milton offers its residents both easy access to the conveniences of Atlanta and the beauty of rural living. A community of 35,000, Milton is on the more affluent side of Georgia with homes from $200,000 to $1.5 million. Milton is all about the landscape and many of the homes have acreage with stables and farms. The community enjoys one of the very lowest crime rates in Georgia.
Milton is on the outskirts of Atlanta and many of the residents commute to high paying jobs in the city. Atlanta has everything you could possibly want including major sports teams, the Georgia Aquarium (completely funded by a co-founder of Home Depot), events, festivals, shopping of all kinds and cultural events.
If you are looking for an upscale community at a much reduced price from those in the rest of the country – Milton might be your place to retire!
