Located in King and Pierce counties with a population of just over 7,000, Milton is a small family-friendly city. Locals describe the area as “quiet, but always busy.” At just one mile long, it’s easy not to even realize you’re in Milton.
Given its size, there aren’t a lot of things to do in Milton proper, however, with its close proximity to larger towns like Edgewood, Federal Way, and Auburn and big cities like Seattle and Tacoma, there’s no shortage of activities. Seattle is just 30 minutes away, while Tacoma is a short 15-minute jaunt.
As one would expect in the Pacific Northwest, the climate is damp or rainy most of the year, although the summers are usually beautiful.
In recent years, the city has made improvements to the roads, as well as adding new sidewalks and lighted paths, providing residents with safe places to walk at night, while creating a more dynamic, family-friendly feel.
Triangle Park, the city’s main park, is popular among locals. A community park, it has a beautiful memorial honoring veterans. While the city is small, most locals love Milton, boasting the town’s welcoming attitude towards newcomers of all ages and diverse backgrounds.
Milton is small and quaint, encompassing a total area of just 2.55 square miles, with all but 0.1 square miles being land-based.
Surrounding communities and cities include Federal Way to the north, Tacoma to the northeast, Puyallup to the south, Fife to the west, and Edgewood to the east.
Despite being a small city, there’s plenty to do in the cities adjacent to Milton, including the Pacific Bonsai Museum, Wild Waves Theme & Water Park, and Rhododendron Species Botanical Garden in Federal Way; Discover Nature in Lakewood; Pioneer Park and Puyallup Farmers Market in Puyallup; the Tacoma Art Museum and the America’s Car Museum in Tacoma.
