Milford, DE Overview

One of the few cities in Delaware that straddles two counties, Milford is home to approximately 6,200 as it flows between Kent and Sussex Counties.  Residents have the transportation advantages of two major north/south arteries, since Milton is situated at the intersection of U.S. 113 and Delaware 1.  Well-kept older homes, mature shade trees, and a quaint downtown district blend in this historic town against the backdrop of the scenic Mispillion River.  In fact, the Mispillion Riverwalk greenway serves as a center of community life, hosting outdoor activities and environmental programs.  Founded as a shipbuilding town, Milford is now the celebrated host of the World Championship Weakfish Tournament on Delaware Bay.  Nearby attractions include Abbott’s Mill Nature Center and Abbott’s Pond, where Delaware Nature Society provides hiking trails, canoeing opportunities, and nature programs.  The close proximity of Slaughter Beach expands recreational opportunities as well as real estate options.  Charming cottages, historic homes, beach bungalows, and handsome rural communities are all residential possibilities in the Milford area.

Climate and Weather

The Temperature chart displays average high and low values for January and July, and is designed to provide an indication of both seasonal and daily temperature variability. The Weather Risk Index indicates the calculated risk of each type of weather event occurring in the future. This risk is based on historical localized storm events and weather patterns. The national average for each type of weather event equals a score of 100, so a score of 200 would represent twice the risk as the national average, and a score of 50 would represent half the risk of the national average.
