Minutes away from Rehoboth Beach and Lewes on the Eastern Shore rests the quaint little village of Milton. Milton suggests life in another era -- Victorian in look and charm, this seaside shipbuilding site is filled with historic homes and landmarks.
Less than 2,000 people make up the population of Milton, but the village thrives on the success of its local businesses and tourism. Bolstered by balmy winds and a relatively temperate climate for the area, Milton offers genteel family life centered around the opportunities for fishing and recreation on the Delaware Bay. The village is proud of its safe, clean streets and stable property values.
If you seek relief from big city traffic, pollution and fast-paced living, you'll fall in love with the beautiful beaches, ocean breezes and leisurely lifestyle the residents of Milton share with each other and their seasonal neighbors and vacationers.
Antique shopping, special events and restaurants based on Milton's heritage give you ample opportunities for fun and enjoyment. Don't miss the Dogfish Head Craft Brewery for a tour and a taste of locally brewed beers. Other restaurant attractions that are famous in the village are the Irish Eyes Pub and Restaurant and the Brick Hotel Restaurant and Tavern. You'll also want to check out some of the parades, local festivals and craft fairs -- all of southern Delaware loves a good festival!
Just before the War of 1812, the original village of Head of Broadkill was renamed to Milton in honor of the English poet John Milton. History and literature are still an important part of the community and is education and the preservation of the local homes and landmarks. Milton was also once known as the "Holly Capital of the World"; producing giant American Holly plants that grow to as much as 60 feet. At one point, the village engaged in a successful button making industry, creating buttons from shipments of mother-of-pearl from Europe.
Fishing enthusiasts can head to nearby Broadkill Beach or Cape Henlopen State Park for a day or an afternoon of some of the area's finest fishing spots. Surrounding the village are a number of flatland roads offering beautiful scenery for cyclists.
Milton is well-known for agriculture and wonderful farmers' markets. You can buy the freshest summer fruits and vegetables directly from local gardeners and farmers, and the area also produces soybeans, corn and chickens.
For many residents, Milton embodies its namesake's work - "Paradise Found!"
