Dover is part of a two city urban area with a small town feel. It is home to a diverse population of people from all over who come together to carve out a life and a living in a small mid west town along the Tuscarawas river. You can bike the flat friendly neighborhood streets, shop in small businesses in downtown Dover, take a short trip to Amish country and zip up state route 77 to Canton and Akron Metropolitan areas.

In Dover, i like the community that is present and the old values. You can go down the main streets and you will see all kinds of different stores and even the old Quaker movie theater. I frequent the coffee shops often to focus on papers to type and to have a strong cup of black coffee to keep me motivated. Afterwards i could walk around or just go see a movie right across the street. Everything is so close there inst much need for a vehicle unless you have physical issues or problems. Its a quite but bustling community with a new public school being built soon near the old one. Things will be busy but ill still enjoy it.
Wonderful school system, many local mom and pop shops to explore and support. Different activities to do around the area: local park with baseball fields and playground, local pool, disk golf course, stadium where high school sports are held and open to the public for running and walking around the track. Very friendly neighborhood. Small town but wonderful place to grow up.
