Finally, get outside-and-explore-weather is back…and we’re back with a fresh new itinerary for you to follow (or pick & choose from)! Day Tripping in Milford (CT) has it all, coffee, cocktails, shopping, beauty, and good eats. Park once and take a stroll around downtown Milford. So fun!
(33 River Street) First stop – coffee, always. Cafe Atlantique serves up some delicious, locally-roasted coffee, heavenly crepes, paninis, and much more in this laid-back, cool-vibes coffee shop. We could have sat, sipped, and people-watched all day.
They recently started offering creative cocktails in the evening and live music every Friday & Saturday. Let the fun continue into the evening!
(22 Broad Street #14) We LOVE visiting The Lovet Shop & Tracy, who owns the store. We always leave with something we’re excited about – this time, awesome new jeans. Lovet is beautifully curated and is a must-visit destination if you like your labels eco-friendly and your wardrobe filled with super soft, wearable clothes!
(22 Broad St #12) Right next door to The Lovet Shop is MakeupMakeup where you can visit Kristina – a pro makeup artist of 30 years in the fashion/commercial industry. She custom blends foundations and designs beauty looks for women over 40 using only the best natural & organic products!
She’s also a photographer and offers unique modeling/headshots/commercial/social media packages for her clients.
(Also 22 Broad St #12) Under the same roof, working in perfect symmetry, is Juliette and The Body Waxing Studio. Hair removal & skin care for women & men from head to toe…yep, including male Brazilians 🙈 – this is the place folks travel to!
Besides waxing, Juliette also offers LED light therapy, micro channeling, microdermabrasion, customized facials, carboxy treatments, lash lifting, lash & brow tinting, plus retail clean products.
(8 S. Broad St) Speaking of places that people travel far and wide to, Whispers from Lady Olga has a following! A perfect-fitting bra is a hard thing to come by, we all know it. And that’s why it’s well worth a trip to visit owners Lori and Jeniene, and their team of friendly certified bra fitters!
Stop here for beautiful bras from Junior to size O, plus a lovely selection of loungewear, accessories, gifts, and more!
(43 River St) If you’ve forgotten how much fun it is to peruse a record store, now’s your chance to rectify that! Static Era Records is an independent record label founded by Jay Reason. The space in Milford is a combination record store, the headquarters for the label, and did we mention, super cool!
Static Era Records proudly participates in Record Store Day. This year, Record Store Day falls on April 22nd and features titles from Taylor Swift, Pearl Jam, The 1975, Beach House, and more.
P.S. If you have old records in good condition kicking around – bring them in, they pay cash and the most in the area!
(50 Daniel Street) Scheduling a lunch or dinner at Stonebridge Restaurant is a must! Since 1989, locals & foodies know this is the spot for a fun, casual yet elegant dining experience…with a view! Their heated deck and patio overlook the Wepawaug River and waterfall.
There’s something for all on this menu! We chowed on this deliciousness 👇!
If you have time, enjoy some of the local downtown history and Milford Green, the second-longest town green in New England, around since at least 1646!
