"A Quiet Country Town with Beautiful Hudson River Views"

Milton is a pretty, quiet little hamlet in the town of Marlborough located on the Hudson River's west bank. If you're in the mood to shop and visit museums, you're better off visiting neighboring Ballston Spa or Saratoga Springs, but if you're in the mood to visit the Hudson River and enjoy outdoor activities, you'll love the town of Milton.

There's a few shops in town like the Country Fresh Grocery, Hepwarth Farms, and your neighborhood Stewart's Candy Shop. Milton doesn't have that many restaurants but I recommend visiting Henry's Farm to Table, which has a swan pond (might be a little disturbing watching the ducks as you eat one though). There's also the New Friends Cafe and Bakery, and Benji's Pizzeria Restaurant, which are great venues to take your family any time of the day. There's not any night life here and it's very quiet; people usually brush through Milton on their way to the horse racing tracks and healing mineral waters found in Saratoga Springs. Saratoga County is horse racing land, and that's why most people come here---if not to visit the local botiques and other funky shops in nearby towns.

Kids who live in Milton are served by the Marlboro Central School District. Milton has its own train station which can get you fast from here to there. Homes are affordable, starting around $169,000-$200,000, and it's fairly safe to live here and raise a family. Take your kids to Riverfront Park and you'll see why this is a quaint, ideal place in Ulster and Saratoga County to raise your kids. The school system is not that bad and there's lots to do for everyone in nearby towns like Ballston Spa and Saratoga Springs (as mentioned above). There's also the beautiful Kayaderosseras Creek. Don't forget to go horseback riding at nearby farms! The area is scenic and very beautiful. It's definitely not one to be missed!
