I’ve always lived, worked and vacationed within 20-30 minutes of Milford. Since I began investing in the city, I became more in synch with the alluring scenic views as well as convenient access to metro north. You cannot help but be captivated by the shoreline and beautiful parks, you are surrounded by coastal living. Outside of the fact that Milford is known as a suburb of New York City with a population of 50,000 +, it seems to me, to be one of the best places to live in Coastal Connecticut. Situated along the Long Island Sound, Milford is your best bang for your buck when considering the value of homes in general. It has the suburban feel so many people desire with easy access to restaurants, bars, shopping, and natural environments like Silver Sands State Park & Charles Island.
