Dover, Delaware is one of those cities I always go to when I visit my parents on Delmarva. It's not flashy or fancy or classy or special. BUT it has all of those stores that I need but can't get to easily where I live; plus there's no sales tax in Delaware. So I hit up Sam's Club (mainly for a huge bag of walnuts that will last me for months, and if it's lunchtime you get free samples!), Michael's (I don't do too many arts-and-crafts, but every once in a while I need something for a project), T.J. Maxx (name brands for less!), and the local mall (which I really only go to for Victoria's Secret). But if you want to go as a tourist, you can gamble at Dover Downs, or see a Nascar race at the Dover International Speedway; I have done neither, but they might be kinda fun! And I highly recommend going to the Delaware State Fair in the summer. I have gone almost every year, and I love playing all of the games, seeing the different farm animals (especially baby ones), and going to amazing concerts (Toby Keith, Kenny Chesney, Travis Tritt, etc.). I don't really think of Dover as a vacation spot, but if you happen to be in the area, you could always stop by.
