Visit Milford – Milford Chamber of Commerce
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 10 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!
