Milford has been a great town for many. With many public institutions that promote advanced and A.P classes students often get a head start in college. While Milford has a small town feel, it is within a few hours of New York, and Baltimore. This allows closeness to the city without being in it. Delaware is a prime place for small businesses, and has many local farmers for farm fresh food. Milford is also close to many beaches, but is not greatly impacted by traffic from tourists. Overall Milford is a great place for a family to settle down for a small town feel while being close to the city.
I have been here since I was 4 years old. Its been 19 years. Milford is very much known for its Art, it's Ship-Building history (Mill-Ford) and the many festivals that happen here. It would definitely be good place to live and raise your family. Very typical in a sense when you think of a Northeast hometown in America. We fit right in. We have the flare of southern hospitality with the passions of urban life. Only 20 minutes to the beach and 2 hours of driving to major cities like Washington D.C., Baltimore and Philadelphia. Living on a Peninsula has the perks in weather. You experience the glory of all seasons. The most beautiful Fall weather. The cozy winter weather. Colorful spring and definitely the sunny summers.
