Welcome to Milton

 
Exceptional living in a semi-rural setting with an equestrian heritage 
 
A few minutes north of Atlanta is a rural paradise, the city of Milton. Milton has grown from historical farmland to a relatively new town incorporated in 2006 with a solid equestrian heritage. Its strong emphasis on balanced development and innovative land-use policies has been the cornerstone of its laid-back, semi-rural setting. Residents in this unique city can enjoy an unmatched quality of life thanks to its vibrant mix of commercial and residential spaces, excellent schools, good all-year-round weather, and numerous exciting attractions. 
 
One of the things that makes Milton unique, when it comes to equestrian matters, are how its horse farms are woven into the fabric of the city itself, dispersing locations of these horse farms widely between neighborhoods. Select farms house a dozen or more horses, while others house just a few, be assured, whatever the size, they are central to Milton and its distinct equestrian identity. Some community members own horses; others may just ride them; and there are some community members who simply enjoy living in Milton around others that understand the meaning and specialness of the equestrian lifestyle that is offered in this unique town.
 
The up and coming downtown Milton/Crabapple area is growing at a rapid pace, with an offering of live, work and play options with walkability to many of the downtown hotspots, boutiques and dining options. The downtown area offers a wide variety of fun and exciting events that are sure to please individuals and families alike.  Just a few of the must attend events, include the Mayor's Run, jog for a cause, Milton Community Egg Hunt, Memorial Day Ceremony, Crabapple Fest, Carvin' in Crabapple and the family Christmas in Crabapple event that draws crowds from towns across the area. Be sure to check out the full details of all the Milton events on their events page
 
Despite being designated as a city, it has a rustic look and feel. It offers exceptional driving scenes down two-lane roads that wind pasts horse farms and acres of well-planned vistas. Milton hosts perfect luxury homes tucked away from bustling Atlanta city life. Easy walkability, picturesque homes, and well-manicured gardens are hallmarks of the properties available in Milton, many of which are home to families and professionals who enjoy country living while still maintaining access to modern conveniences.
