MiltonNestled on the banks of the Broadkill River, Milton oozes small-town charm. Once a busy inland port featuring shipyards, granaries and a railroad, Milton is now best known as the home of Dogfish Head Brewery and its attractive, quaint downtown that’s surrounded by Victorian, Colonial and Federal-style homes.
Why Live Here
Truth be told, not many places like Milton exist anymore. Step back into a time where every Wednesday evening in the summer you can find the whole town out for free concerts in Milton Memorial Park. Don’t be surprised to spot kids fishing along the road at Wagamons Pond. Even the town’s boat launch is a pleasant sight, with small vessels, kayaks, canoes and paddleboards set to take off and wind their way down the river to its mouth on Delaware Bay.
Milton also has a thriving arts scene thanks to the treasured Milton Theatre and events throughout the year. Local favorite restaurants such as Irish Eyes, Suburban Farmhouse, The Backyard and Tequila Real are sure to please, and don’t forget about Kings Ice Cream on Union Street – the oldest commercial building in Sussex County.
