Milford, the "Small City with a Big Heart," and the westernmost outpost of New Haven County is one of Connecticut's oldest communities. Founded in 1639 through a purchase of land from the Paugussett Indians, the city has managed to retain a stretch of residential waterfront laced with about 1,000 houses. Milford's 17-mile frontage on Long Island Sound -- the longest stretch of coastline in the state—is edged with 13 beaches interrupted only by a few marinas and a yacht club.
"I love to travel but I am so happy that the place I call home is the place I've lived my entire life. We have it all and what we don't have we can get easily by planes, trains and automobiles. Fairs, festivals, concerts, dining, shopping, beaches, beaches, beaches—there is always something going on. Milford is full of community minded people that do work for an abundance of organizations to make this a wonderful place for us all to work and play. If you want to get out of Dodge, then hope on one of those planes, trains or automobiles, but at the end of the day, you're going to be glad you came back to the small city with the big heart."
-Paula Demirjian, Production Coordinator Subway World Headquarters
Nestled on the coast of Connecticut in a safe harbor, Milford calls all ages. Having 17 miles of coast and beaches it evokes memories of childhood and lazy days at the beach. Boasting incredible views from marsh to harbor and beach, a ten minute ride and wooded parks and recreation entice you. Boating, sailing, fishing, kayaking, swimming, biking and boardwalks replenish our bodies and soul. Tranquility gives way to a quaint downtown with boutique shopping that rolls into a vibrant US-1 shopping corridor. Milford has it all and we want you to enjoy it! Come, imagine a day with us.
Complete with its shimmering marinas, a vibrant downtown scene, and walking trails, Milford's neighborhoods are steeped in history and often remain that place known as "home" long after residents depart.
