A quaint New England village located on the Long Island Sound, Milford, Connecticut, founded in 1639, is the sixth oldest town in Connecticut. Boasting the second longest town green in New England, it hosts numerous art fairs in addition to lobster and oyster festivals throughout the summer. Conveniently located just 65 miles from New York City, Milford is easily accessible via interstate or by taking the MetroNorth train making this the perfect summer home for families that need to commute to the city for work. The station, located in the heart of the village, is within easy walking distance of restaurants, bike/kayak rentals, shops and beautiful harbor where outdoor concerts are held weekly in summer. The rental property, located just steps from the beautiful sandy Walnut Beach, is located between Silver Sands State Park and the Housatonic River. Cycling, kayaking, sailing, fishing, windsurfing and kiting are all popular activities here.
Other Activities: Enjoy kayaking, windsurfing or kite surfing on the Sound or fishing, at the end of the block. Bird lovers will enjoy the observation deck over looking the Housatonic River at the Audubon Nature Center just down the road. Always a fun family outing, catch the Bluefish, the minor league baseball team in Bridgeport just 15 minutes away.
Golf: The Great River Golf Club offers a challenging championship course as well as excellent dining at Monty's River Grille.
