MILFORD, OH (FOX19) - Are you looking for a city that is practically in our backyard with nostalgic charm perfectly mixed with the modern conveniences of a large city?
Welcome to Milford!
Milford is a quiet city that sits within Interstate 275 in Hamilton and Clermont counties. It is comfortably home to both national chain retailers and "mom and pops," giving Milford residents lots of variety close to home. It features scenic, picturesque hillsides that are rare in such an urban location.
Milford Exempted Village Schools is a state-rated "Excellent" school district, meaning families have the comfort of knowing their children are receiving a top education.
And Milford's dining options are second-to-none in the area. 21 Brix in downtown Milford is a featured destination for diners from all over the region, and Sugar Cupcakery keeps those with a sweet tooth in confectionary heaven.
But if outdoor activities are what you're craving, Milford has everything you need. From kayaking on the Little Miami River to the Little Miami Scenic Trail, park systems, bike trails and nature preserve, Milford offers everything you could want in an outdoor recreational experience.
Milford kicks off each summer with its Frontier Days festival. What started as a simple canoe race on the Little Miami River has grown into a weekend-long event with carnival rides, game booths and live entertainment. Local non-profits raise money during the four-day event to reinvest in the people and places of Milford to make it a happier and healthier place to live.
