Milford is bounded by the Delaware, Sawkill and VanderTyne on three sides, and the foothills of the Poconos on the fourth. This means it has a lot of "green" activities, and Green has its own page, which you can see here. It also has lots of shopping, and dining. But Milford is also all about culture. Live music, music festivals, film and film festivals, flea markets and charity events all contribute to a lively roster of activities. The Milford Theater celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2011. It did so with new ownership, new bathrooms, new HVAC and a whole new attitude. That attitude is easy to absorb: keep it fun. Check the schedule to see what live performances, films, readings, meetings, concerts and plays are on tap right in the heart of Milford. The Black Bear Film Festival is back at the Milford Theater. An entire weekend of a dozen films, a Salon of independent and experimental films and of course the opening Gala, make for a terrific weekend among the gorgeous fall leaves. Chat with people in the tent; they've come from New York, Long Island, Connecticut and Maryland just for this. Check out the BBFF here

You can see a video of the Columns on our History page. Grey Towers is the home of the Pinchot family, which gave us Gifford Pinchot, former Pennsylvania governor and a naturalist at a time when none existed. His efforts led directly to the federal government's involvements in conservation. The mansion is open to the public, and the grounds play host to numerous events from fairs to concerts. More about Grey Towers on our Green page. Free bus transit for bikes, canoes, kayaks, from the Delaware Water Gap up to Miflord Beach. Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend.

Milford Beach, just north of the bridge to New Jersey (upper left), is far more than a sand beach on the Delaware. It has bathroom and picnic facilities (inset), a covered space to get out of the sun or rain, a boat launch area (left), and the McDade Trail running through it. The beach is operated by the National Parks Service, so there is an admission charge during high season.
