Whether you’re looking for a day-long outing or a lifetime of comfortable living, you don’t have to go far to find a place "where living is a pleasure."
In fact, it’s proclaimed on the sign that greets visitors as they make their way from Interstate 64 into Milton in eastern Cabell County — and residents of the town say it’s absolutely true.
Many folks choose to live in Milton because it offers the safety and familiarity of small-town life. And although it’s located between the major metropolitan areas of Huntington and Charleston, folks who live there say there’s really no reason to leave town limits to find entertainment.
From the Mountaineer Opry House to Blenko Glass, the Milton Covered Bridge, a massive flea market, and West Virginia Pumpkin Park — plus downtown shops and restaurants — there’s always something happening in this small burg.
And that’s just the start. Turn the page to discover Milton.
