Milford, DE Needs A Great Deal Of Improvement 2.5 rating By Anonymous ( May 28, 2018) After being a resident of Milford, Delaware for the past 2 years I cannot recommend it highly enough... as a place to avoid at all costs! There is absolutely nothing redeeming about this place. Someone told me it was one of the best areas in the state to live in. Haha! That was a ...Read More joke, and not even a funny one. The crime rate alone is enough to make anyone run for the hills. The schools are awful. Everything around here is just falling apart because the people who live here just don't take pride in where they live. About the only thing that is nice about this place is the weather.


If you do find yourself passing through, there are a few things you can do to keep yourself entertained. There's the Milford Museum (not exactly stimulating, but it's something to do), the Live Cheap and Make Art Studios, Milford Skating Center, the Anne Jenkins Art Gallery, and the Milford Massage and Wellness Center. There's also Gallery 37 if arcade games are your thing. Read Less
