A small Connecticut city with a big heart and tons of charm, Milford dates back to 1639 when it was established by the English. It boasts 17 miles of scenic coastline, an abundance of outdoor recreation, and a wide array of fun things to do within the city.
Visitors looking to experience an authentic Connecticut beach can bring a picnic lunch to Silver Sands State Park, where they can stroll along the boardwalk or have a picnic on the yellow sands before moving to Walnut Beach to watch a live summer concert or buy fresh produce from the Walnut Beach Farmers Market. They can also head to Eisenhower Park for an afternoon of outdoor sports, playgrounds, and splash pad fun, to Grove Circle for a game of softball, or to McCann Natatorium to swim a few laps or practice diving. Alternatively, guests can play a round of golf at Orchards Golf Course, earn bragging rights at Bowlero Milford where they can go bowling and eat snacks, tour the Gilded Lily Gallery, or take a cooking class at The Fig Cooking School.
