Best City in Georgia
Looking for a top rated city for your new home? Milton, Georgia was just named the 10th “Best City to Live In” by the Wall Street 24/7. According to this article: “When it comes to choosing a place to call home, everyone has their own priorities and subjective tastes. Still, there are specific attributes some communities share that are almost universally desirable: safe streets, a strong economy, affordability, and a range of entertainment options, to name a few.
24/7 Wall St. created a weighted index of over two dozen measures to identify the best city to live in each state. We considered all boroughs, census designated places, cities, towns, and villages with at least 8,000 residents. ”
