I live in the panhandle of Florida in a community called East Milton and I enjoy my life here. This area is peaceful, while also providing what you need within close proximity. In addition, this is a very safe area, as the crime rate is pretty low. This could be because the neighbors are so nice here and they always watch out for everyone else here.
The students in this area attend Santa Rosa County School District and as a parent of a student at one of the local schools, I can attest that the school system is great. The teaches here are always ready to answer any questions that we have as parents. In fact, I believe that the schools are the best areas in East Milton, Florida.
You can be at the beach with a quick drive and there are several parks within driving distance when here in East Milton. There are enough restaurants to meet any dining need that you may have. If shopping is on you’re to do list, there are a few nice unique shops here in town and many others within an easy travel distance.
