Being the capital of delaware is Dover's is not the only claim to fame for this small city. It is also the home of Dover Air Force Base and Dover Downs, with harness racing and where NASCAR visits twice a year, and ten nationally recognized Museums.
It is hard to believe that if you drive about an hour north.. or west, you will be in some of the most populated areas of the United States. Yet, in Dover and the rest of Delaware, it is like an oasis from the madness. A great place to call home while also providing easy access to Washington D.C, Baltimore, and Philadephia. In addition to the cities, 30 miles south are some of the nices beaches in the Northeast of the U.S.
Dover, which dates back to the 1600s, features both Colonial and Victorian architecture, with beautifully restored businesses and private residences. The historic Green and Loockerman Street are great places for strolling or shopping
