Moved here into the town center over 3 years ago and have not regretted it. It is a very pretty place at the head of the Broadkill River filled with lovely antique houses. There are events year-round (especially in the summer), public parks, a library, a local museum, restaurants, shops, and a theater. You can boat on Wagamons Pond or on the Broadkill. There is a fishing pier. It is a great town for walking or riding a bike! Both young families and retirees have moved here. Milton is also close to the Delaware beaches.

I love it here. I just moved here from Connecticut and everyone is so kind and friendly! The air quality is better and I love the farm lands. I love the countryside and my neighborhood is very friendly and positive. I feel at home here and very safe. I'm glad my family and I moved. I won't move back to Connecticut.
Milton is a great little town. It is close to the Delaware beaches including Lewes Beach, Rehoboth Beach, and the famous Dewey Beach. The town of Milton has a park, ice cream store, many restaurants, and a theater. Milton has a small town feel. Most of the residents know eachother and you are sure to run into people you know where ever you go.
