Activities and Attractions in Milford
A vibrant town with an artistic vibe, Milford has a charming downtown atmosphere home to boutique shopping, flavorful restaurants, quaint coffee shops, and picturesque scenery along the Mispillion River. Dine at delectable eateries like WestSide Restaurant, Abbott’s Grill, La Tonalteca, and Meding’s Seafood. Then, pick up a one-of-a-kind souvenir from the shops and art galleries in the Milford Shipyard Area Historic District or the South Milford Historic District.
Additionally, Milford is home to several historic districts and shipyards, as well as a variety of historic buildings. Visit historic locales like Griffith’s Chapel, Parson Thorne Mansion (or Silver Hill), and Abbott’s Mill. You can also get a glimpse of Milford’s unique history at the Milford Museum, which is housed in the town’s original Post Office building in the downtown area.
The Mispillion Riverwalk is a lovely park that weaves its way through the center of the downtown area. Visitors can go for a leisurely stroll along the river banks or even go kayaking or canoeing in Mispillion River itself. If you follow the river for five to eleven miles from downtown Milford, you’ll end up at nearby Slaughter Beach—ideal for a day trip to the beach coupled with an invigorating yet scenic workout.
Not only can humans enjoy a lush, green park in the center of town, but your four-legged buddies can too! Milford Dog Park is located near the Mispillion Riverwalk and includes two sections: a large dog section and a small dog section. The dog park is also adjacent to Goat Island and the historic Vinyard Shipyard.
Goat Island is a manmade island built by local shipbuilders from the city’s thriving shipbuilding industry during the 1940s. Created as a way to divert the path of the Mispillion River to make room for Milford-made subchasers needed for World War II, Goat Island now serves as a beautiful hiking locale and nature preserve with four diverse ecosystems that can be observed from the nature trail and several observation decks.
