Dover is an amazing town. The people, the places, and the overall friendliness is incomparable to other places. While I go to a different school, all of my friends and family live in Dover, so I'm there almost every day. The school is amazing-the music program is outstanding, and is bigger then the athletics. Dover is that town that I wish I could live in forever. I always wished I went to Dover for school, but unfortunately I live near it, not close enough to be in the district. I always go to sporting and music events for them. The hospitality from everyone is amazing, and Dover is a fantastic town.

Dover has a small town feel with big citys nearby. they are rapidly building and growing and it the new up and coming neighborhood in the area! With new restaurant and quick shop options being added everday.
I like that it is a central location to different cities. I can be anywhere I need to be within a reasonable time. The pay in the area is very competitive. Taxes, however, are ridiculously high for what you're getting.
