Homes ready for move-in in the greater Dover area
Since Dover is quiet, small, historic, and 40 minutes away from Rehoboth Beach, you can be sure that quality-of-life issues are where this city truly excels. And these aren't the sort of quality-of-life criteria likely to be used in a national survey: for example, Dover residents often wave and greet each other in the street. Depending on where you're coming from, and what experiences you've had, this could be a great, friendly throwback to your own childhood. Or it could strike you as something out of "Leave it to Beaver." Though it can spook newcomers at first, they do get used to it, and even prefer it, much as those who move to the Southern states acclimate to "Southern hospitality." Things are just different here-- and possibly better.
Delaware was the first state in the Union, and it will be happy to remind you of this. As it should be. You'll see the motto "First State" a lot once you move to Dover, starting with the First State Heritage Park, which you should go to get a closer look at your new state's considerable history. Another great place to get acquainted with Dover is at Dover's Green. This section of the city houses some of its most important historic sites-- keep your eyes peeled for markers which will explain the significance of each site.
It's not just the city itself that will prove interesting to history buffs. The countryside outside of Dover is also home to many Amish people. If you are curious-- and many are-- spend a day visiting the Amish of Kent County. It might be a good idea to bring bags, so you can haul home all of the loot you'll undoubtedly pick up here. Shady Lane Selections specializes in quilts. Country Furniture and Crafts, the Daniel Yoder Furniture Shop, American Heirlooms, and Amish Furniture supply "English" (that is, non-Amish) Dover with high-quality handcrafted furniture. It isn't enough to buy food, furniture, and other trinkets from the Amish. To really get to know these new neighbors, go on the annual Amish Country Bike Tour, where you'll forsake cars and see the area in an old-fashioned way.
The countryside is also notable for fantastic craft brews, wines, and produce. The wineries and breweries of the area include the famous Dogfish Head, so what else might you discover in Dover? Get busy visiting Old Dominion Brewery, Stewart's Brewing Company, Twin Lakes Brewing Company, Iron Hill Brewery, and Fordham Brewery. If you are just not a beer drinker, how about Fenwick Wine Cellars? Or the many small farms in the Dover area? The moral of the story might be: don't stay in the city all the time, or you could miss out on some fantastic experiences to be had in the countryside.
Now, lest you think that Dover is all about history, farms, and furniture, let us reassure you now it is not. This area is also the home of the Dover International Speedway, which hosts NASCAR races and all the high-octane drama they bring with them.
This could be the perfect home for you and your family. Let us help you find a new home in Dover, so you can get started making the "First State" your own.
