Welcome to Milton
Milton is a distinct, vibrant city beloved for its proud community, beautiful natural spaces, and small-town feel. One of metro Atlanta’s most sought-after places, residents treasure its high quality of life, unique character, safe and welcoming environment, as well as ready access to remarkable schools, restaurants, shops and more.
The City of Milton formed in 2006 from parts of unincorporated Fulton County. About 85% of its over 39 square miles are “agriculturally zoned,” meaning residential lots must be at least 1 acre. The city has among Georgia’s highest educational attainment rates and lowest unemployment rates.
Milton is consistently ranked as offering residents among the highest quality of life in Georgia. In 2011 -- just five years after the City's incorporation -- Milton was rated as having the highest quality of life in the state of Georgia and ninth-highest quality of life in the southern United States. That stellar reputation has carried over in the years since, with Milton consistently recognized nationally as one of the best (and safest) places to call home.
