Best Places to Live: Why I Love My Town

Why I Love My Town: Milton
By: Taniya Nayak
Moving to Milton was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Less than seven miles from the city, it has a view of Boston that makes me smile every time I look out the window.

And I’ve come to love my neighborhood. I spend lots of time at the Milton Yacht Club. My gym, Milton Hill Sport and Spa, is right across the street. (That means no excuses!) I make my morning stop at Dunkin’ Donuts on the corner, my mani-pedis are quick and pleasant at Daisy’s Nail, and my favorite takeout — which I get at least once a week — is Taste of Thailand. (Get the chicken krapow.) And for those nights that I just don’t feel like going out or cooking, I can take the elevator down to 88 Wharf for a bite, and never leave my building. Nice setup, right?

Living on the Neponset River has brought out the outdoorsy person in me that I never knew existed; I’m now the proud owner of a bike, a kayak, and running shoes, and put them all to regular use. Having the bike path and the river right outside my door makes me feel like I’m on vacation every day. Nayak is a home design expert and TV personality.
