With small town charm and plenty of unique shopping and dining options, downtown Milford is the perfect place to enjoy a holiday evening. Walk down Main St. with your significant other or your family, stop into whatever shop catches your eye and just enjoy the moment.
Having opened in 2015, Blossoms on Main has been providing its customers with beautiful floral arrangements for all kinds of occasions. Whether you’re shopping for someone else or just want a bouquet of flowers to grace your living room, Blossoms on Main pairs expertise with friendly, helpful customer service.
In addition to floral arrangements, Blossoms also carries a wide selection of decorations that rotate seasonally. Stop in now to start or complete your holiday home decoration set.
No matter your preferred brew, The Proving Grounds Coffee & Ice Cream is home to a world of coffee flavors. The menu is filled with different styles, such as pour-over, cafe miel, cold brew, french press, americano and more. They’ve also teamed up with Browndog Creamery in Farmington to serve delicious, local ice cream. You can also enjoy fresh pastries delivered daily from Crust in Fenton.
Proving Grounds also hold regular events, such as open mic nights, poetry readings, author meet-and-greets, storytime for kids and more.
Taking its name to heart, Milford House prides itself on making many of its menu items in-house. There’s the popular French dip sandwich, the Bread Styx appetizer, housemade chicken wings, a killer Maurice salad, BBQ spare ribs and more. All of that and I haven’t even gotten to the assorted flavors of Guernsey ice cream!
If you enjoy a nice walk through scenic parks, Central Park in Milford is home to scenic views along the Huron River and Pettibone Creek. There are also basketball and tennis courts for the warmer parts of the year, playground equipment for kids and a beautiful amphitheater.
This is just some of what Milford has to offer. To see everything for yourself, plan a trip today!
