From the 17th century Dover Green Square to the Old State House, history is a big part of what makes the capital of Delaware so special.
Dover hotel guests will love the selection of boutiques and shops downtown. There are plenty to choose from––and on Tuesdays and Fridays, the shopping gets even more interesting with the addition of Spence’s Bazaar. The vendors of this bi-weekly flea market have everything from Amish-grown produce to vintage antique treasures.
You can tour nearby Dover Air Force Base, and the Dover International Speedway is a popular destination for race fans, convenient to Dover hotels; the track is NASCAR-approved, and is right next door to a harness racing track, if you prefer your entertainment at a slower pace.
If you’re feeling lucky, you can place bets on the horses at Dover Downs or the Harrington Raceway, and then celebrate their winnings with a pint or two at the historic Golden Fleece Tavern. At the end of the day, head out to one of the city’s unique cafes, restaurants or pubs where you will find lots of hearty American fare, along with seafood, Thai and Italian. With plenty of restaurants and accommodations in Dover, there is something for everyone.
