It’s only 2 blocks, so you can see all that’s there within a short walk from The Brick.
Milton has much to offer including some great little shops and eateries, and one of my favorite antique shops. On your way, check out Lavender Field (Cool Springs just outside of Milton). Milton is also home to Dogfish Head Brewery (tours available), and the Milton Theatre.

Experience the Nutter Marvel Carriage Museum, where you’ll find lots of historic buildings and carriages from Nutter Marvel’s collection, including the Queen’s carriage, the Disney Carriage, a peddler’s wagon and an 1800’s era horse-drawn hearse carriage. This is run by volunteers so, sorry, I never know when it will be open!
In just 15-20 minutes, you can get to this historic little town, check out the museum, and take a walk downtown for some shopping and fine eateries.
WINE-ing is, however! Check out some of our local wineries and wine-tasting opportunities as Nassau Valley Vineyards, and Teller Wines, both within about 15 minutes of us.
Shopping is generally on everyone’s list.
