I have lived in Milford, MA for the last 4 years and I enjoy living here. It is a quiet town with quick access to grocery stores and nature (Upper Charles Trail ) is a famous summer spot for many locals. The town is very safe and peaceful.
I really love Milford, I have lived here all of my life and I have never felt more safe in any other town. I run all over town, sometimes on busy streets and I always feel safe. It’s a safe, family friendly town.
