Milton GA: A Family Favorite

The peach state has always been a [place that I enjoy. Georgia and its many cities have a been a second home for me as long as I could remember. Each city and town have its own type of magic and that includes Milton.
Milton Georgia is place that I enjoyed living in thoroughly. The simple and yet satisfying life I lead here was made very happy by the city and its various experiences. The people here were so nice, and they were like family to me. I remember someone invited me to a family picnic as if I was one of the family. It gave me a real warm feeling that I’ll never forget.
Another thing I won’t forget is the food. The food is so delectable. They have found many ways to cook a chicken in this city that it is both delicious and overwhelming. A carnival that I once attended was a showcase of the fun things to do. They have all the amenities of most cities plus some historical sights that were a wonder to see and learn about. The shopping places are ok as well and I really enjoyed the night club scene there. My family loves when we return to this city for a visit.
