Quaint streets lined with Victorian, Gothic Revival and Federalist-style homes, the Broadkill River and Wagamons Pond, and the small-town feeling are what draw new residents to Milton. Many come looking for a new beach home, then discover Milton instead. The farmers market draws locals and visitors alike on summer Fridays. The Dogfish Head Craft Brewery ups its hipness quotient. Cape Henlopen schools are tops.
