The Town of Milton has seen significant growth over the passed 15 years, and yet somehow, to me at least, we still have that charming small town feel. I moved to Milton in 1981 when it was what anyone would have called a "small town" and I've watched our small town grow as I did. With a current population in excess of 100,000 people how can we still be charming?? To me the absolute charm of our town is in the community feeling I get everywhere I go. From the family owned shops on Main Street, to the fishing derby held at Mill Pond, the outdoor swimming at Rotary Park, and the Steam Era every Fall, no matter where I go here I see people I know. Some I grew up with and some I have met as they've joined our populace, but the one thing I have noticed that all Miltonians share is a joy of living in this town.
Neighbors share a coffee on the sidewalk as their kids all play together. People will shout a hello or give you a wave as you drive by. Need a recommendation for a nice restaurant? Stop anyone on any street in Milton and they'll name you their favorite, tell you how to find it, and probably even tell you what they like off the menu. You don't find that in a big city!!
The very definition of charm is pleasant, delightful, appealling, and everywhere you look Milton exudes these things. It doesn't get much more charming than a visit to our Farmers Market on a gorgeous Saturday morning or a stroll around Mill Pond, a must do if you haven't yet seen the little falls around the back! Yes we have the big box stores, and yes we are more than just a one stop light kind of town, but Milton is charming, there is no denying it!!
