SMALL-TOWN FLORIDA STILL EXISTS. Blocks of historic homes & storefronts lead to the Blackwater River waterfront & tell the story of an old Florida town that grew from timber & shipbuilding. Stop for antiques & lunch in a historic post office. Relive the history of rail travel in our renovated depot. Whether you’re interested in history, theater or a quaint bistro, this historic hot spot offers it

The riverfront part is beautiful, and a lovely place to spend an hour or so walking along the river. Well maintained, and suitable for everybody. However, the downtown area is pretty dead - and almost entirely filled with law offices. There is a restaurant there...More

It looks like Downtown Milton is picking back up. There are some shops to visit, some old sites to see, sites along the river, and some decent restaurants. Therefore it is worth it to park and take a stroll around downtown.

I hate to be negative, however downtown Milton is nothing but a bunch of either old abandon or legal/title company buildings. With the exception of a bar, one good pizza shop and the Blackwater Bistro there is nothing else, no shops, no bistros, no nothing....More

We went to a lovely art/craft fair in historic Milton today, along the Blackwater River. We drove around the old part of town while looking for the art show. It's a nice little town, not like the usual cookie cutter seen in Florida. If the...More

The small downtown area of Milton is situated on a large beautiful river surrounded by a mixture of hardwood trees. The old main street is small with several historical buildings. The locals are very friendly and helpful.

The dark waters of the Blackwater River flow slowly through the sleepy historic area of downtown Milton. It is a jewel in the making as Milton awakens from a non progressive time. Beautiful old buildings hold stories from a forgotten time.

This is a small town. There are a few historic attractions but you will be done visiting within a couple hours. Not much going on here. There is not even a hotel in Milton. Good for something to do if you are just passing thru.
