Milton Things to Do

  • Zip Line Canopy Tours

    Milton Florida is home to adventures unlimited, an outdoor park offering a variety of zipline canopy tours. We stopped while visiting the Florida caverns in Marianna, and it was a great alternative activity for the day. We paid a little under $100 for a 7 zip tour. There is a 250 lb weight limit.The staff was very professional and safety minded....

    If you are a beef and potatoes eater then this is the place for you.

    The steaks are thick (like one-inch) and the portions are huge. We actually get two meals (doggy bag) from one visit to the restaurant. They have good tasting chicken and pork ribs too but the house specialty is beef.
    For a side dish (if you like it hot) try some of their famous chili. We didn't but you could smell the cayenne in the air around the tables that did order it.
    With each meal you get some homemade biscuits and a nice crisp salad.

    Decor is western, dark and heavy wood. Dress is very casual (staff is in identical, logoed tee shirts and jeans). Service is fast and friendly.

Milton Warnings and Dangers

    The crime stats for Milton, FL show that is about average for Florida but higher than an average American city of similar size. Violent crimes are the ones primarily above average.

    The statistics for sexual offenders for the Milton area are really scary.
    There are 170 SOs registered. That means if you walk around the town and see 50 random people, then you saw at least one sex offender.

    When visiting Milton, you should probably use precautions like locking doors, putting valueables in locked places and staying away from unfamiliar places late at night.
    Travelers with children or lone woman travelers probably should check out the website below to see if these facts effect where you will be visiting.

Milton Off The Beaten Path

    (I waited on the shore for them to return.... our friends took the canoe trip).

    You rent a canoe, you paddle/float around this winding stream/river; you try not to tip over; you see lots of wild flora/fauna (flowers/trees/animals/insects). From my landlubber viewpoint that sums up their boat trip.
    From their viewpoint: it was thrilling, it was quiet and they got some interesting pics, they got stuck once and had to get out and haul the boat over a log (very exciting), and it was peaceful.

    So it depends on YOUR viewpoint, whether this is the path for you.
    The signs say "Beginners welcome" but I wasn't going to take them up on it.Our friends are not novice canoeists. The stream runs about 3-5 miles per hour (about a brisk walking pace). The stream looks brownish (from vegetation decay) and the shores are sandy and wooded.

    Total run from Munson School Bridge to Indian Ford Road is about 10 miles (a two or three hour ride). There is also an entry half-way down at Red Rock Bridge.

    Munson Bridge is on route 4 just east of route 191.
    Indian Ford Bridge is on Indian Ford Road which you access from route 191, 10 miles south of route 4.
    Red Rock Bridge is also accessed from route 19. it is on a park road about 5 miles south of the intersection of routes 191 and 4.

    to get there:
    from Milton: connect to Munson Highway (route 191) and go north to connect to route 4

    Favorite thing: The motocross track in Milton (Take Exit 31 off of Interstate 10). Go 1/4 mile south on Hwy 87, then left onto dirt road. Road makes an "s" then you see the track property on your left.

    Fondest memory: Racing there as a teenager, coming in third against two state champions.
