Seasonal delights in Milford

While New England's array of activities and attractions make a stay in a Milford vacation rental a year-round option, certain seasons do have a distinct appeal. In the summer months of July and August, daytime temperatures in the high 80s, made somewhat cooler by breezes from Long Island Sound, offer the perfect backdrop for enjoying the town's extensive coastline. It is during the fall months of October and November, though, that demand for rentals shoots up, with travelers from all over drawn to the area to experience one of the world's most spectacular foliage displays first hand.

Natural appeal in Milford

Natural highlights abound in this scenic corner of the world, and Milford's own Silver Sands State Park, with its marsh boardwalk, unspoiled beach and seashell-strewn magical ocean walkway is a great place to start soaking up the scenery. Elsewhere in the town, the Charles Wheeler Wildlife Management Area is a popular spot for birders to catch sight of wading birds strutting their stuff in the Nells Island Marshes. In the nearby town of Stratford, Roosevelt Forest turns the focus to chilled-out strolls through conifer pines and the chance to spy deer amongst the forest's carpet of ferns and wildflowers.
