Welcome to the Canoe Capital of Florida. Milton, just north of Pensacola in the Florida Panhandle, offers waterways by the names of Coldwater, Blackwater and Sweetwater, which flow through the town, drawing paddlers, rafters and tubers. Plus, you can enjoy Milton’s overnight camping. Located along the banks of the Blackwater River, downtown Milton is a designated Florida Main Street Community and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In Milton, a place rich with history and culture, you will find the Museum of Local History, the 1912 Imogene Theater, the L&N Train Depot and many other interesting attractions. In addition, the Blackwater River is a designated Outstanding Florida Water, a waterway worthy of special protection, because of its natural and rare attributes.
