Dover, Delaware

We invite you to visit Dover, the capital city of The First State. A Main Street community, Dover is thriving with galleries, art walks, eateries, quaint boutiques and more. Dover's historic "The Green" was named as one of four Delaware sites that were accepted as the newest National Monuments in America in 2013, making it one of the first National Parks in Delaware!

Located in Central Delaware, in the center of Kent County, The Capital City of Dover is approximately 90 miles south of Philadelphia, PA, and 90 miles east of Washington, DC. The city was founded in 1683 by William Penn. In 1717, it was officially laid out over an area of 125 acres by a commission of the Delaware General Assembly making 2017 our 300th anniversary!

While in Delaware's Capital Region visit a number of free museums featuring everything from airplanes to Victrolas, art galleries, art loop, classes, and theater. There are festivals and events all year long, including the county's signature event -- the Dover Days Festival -- which will be celebrating its 84th anniversary the first weekend in May of 2017.

You will find that Dover is much more than just a home for music festivals and racecars, it is a place overflowing with history and culture. Dover is a blend of various experiences that feature history, art, music, theater, quaint shops, and dining - we have something for everyone! Enjoy shopping in country stores and local malls, or taking a walk in one of our many public parks. History is alive here with a thriving Amish community, and free guided walking tours to learn about the founding of our country, slavery, women in history and more. Finish the night with some gambling or beer tasting at one of our local craft breweries. From museums, to farms, to dining and more, the nation’s first capital has so many possibilities for an amazing vacation. So come see us and Eat, Drink and Buy Art!
