Originally the Dover Opera House, the Schwartz Center is an impressive old building that houses the city's local theater and Symphony. The center recently finished interior renovations and now holds more events throughout the year.
Dance troupes, plays and musicals and the Symphony show here throughout the year. Check the site for shows if you're visiting the area. This is a really nice venue and you get the feel for old American theater inside.
The Schwartz Center is fairly small, only seating about 600 people. This makes for more intimate performances and an enjoyable atmosphere.
Address: 226 S. State Street
Directions: South on State St., about 3 blocks past Wesley College.

As you drive down route 1 through central Delaware, you can't miss Dover Downs Racetrack. The complex is a hotel, auto and equestrian racetrack and slot casino. While the attraction is busy all year long in the casino, the biggest draw for this spot are the 2 NASCAR races it hosts a year.
Throughout the year, various concerts and entertainment performances go on at the Downs. Local weddigns and proms fill up the ballrooms. The restaurants host holiday specials and the horses come to race from November through April.
The casino is limited to slots and there is off-track betting on the second level. The State of Delaware doesn't allow table games.
Address: 1131 North DuPont Highway
I stopped in at the visitor's center my first weekend living in Dover to see if there was any local info I could gather for things to do. There wasn't much of what I was looking for but a lot of history regarding the city. There was information about Caesar Rodney and the Constitutioanl Covnention. It was actually more interesting than I had thought.
The museum is quite small but the folks there are helpful and I was able to find some maps of Dover and the surrounding areas. There was also a little shop with some souvenirs from the area (pretty much everything has the phrase "The First state" on it). There is no charge to get in.
Address: 406 Federal Street
Directions: Near the state house. One block off State Street.

Lookerman in the Spring
Loockerman Streetis the historic heart of the city of Dover. The street has a very old-town feel and houses numerous shops and a few friendly restaurants. Hit up 33 West for a nice lunch before browsing the antique/used book store or grabbing a pint at Irish Mike’s Pub.
Lookerman is centrally located Dover, between the Capital Green and Wesley College.
