The sixth oldest town in CT & perfectly located coastal city between New Haven & Bridgeport & a popular home to NYC commuters via Metro North, this "Little City with the Big Heart" is know for its buttery lobster rolls, a not-so crowded beach and a (very) remote promise of finding a pirate's buried treasure! Shady streets lined with manicured lawns lead to several shell-studded beaches including the popular Silver Sands State Park where you can lay down a towel & enjoy the day, take a swim or soak up the view of kayakers & boats navigating the 14 acre Charles Island 1/2 mile off the sandy shore.
But if you are seeking that treasure - Captain Kidd's gold coins, allegedly stashed there in 1699 - timing is everything. Twice daily during low tide, a rocky sandbar surfaces in the waters, providing a half-mile walk to Charles Island. Safety is a serious issue here, the currents rough, so be sure to check tide charts. There is about a two hour window to complete the round trip journey. From May 1 to August 31 the island is managed as a preserve for nesting birds so only the periphery is accessible.
After spending a relaxing day at the beach many locals head to the bustling downtown with the second longest Town Green in New England with its many famous restaurants & local shops. Noshing on lobster rolls & fresh local oysters, all set around a the Wepawaug River with waterfalls & a picture perfect bustling harbor where water recreation abounds with access to boat launches at the Milford Lisman Landing Marina, multiple city beaches & Silver Sands Park. The many high quality arts & craft shows, varied festivals & events throughout the year makes this Little City with the Big Heart the perfect place to call home.
