Dover, NH

Dover is an old mill town that I have called home many times over the past decade. It's considered a city so it has all the modern amenities, like a park with a bandstand, the children's museum, great bars and a landscaped park. Dover boarders Durham NH, which is home to the University. As a result there are over 21 bars within walking a two mile radius and someone is always playing live music. If you're into the historic side, we have that too! The mill buildings are all standing along with displays about them. The first strike in America happened in Dover and also has the distinction of the first all women strike. It wasn't successful, but it was the first of it's kind and set the president for the New England mill community.

Here are some sites o check out if you come to town

Seacoast Children's Museum
Very cool, even for adults. Bring a child so people don't point at you and laugh

Kelly's Row
An Irish Pub that always seems to have something going on. Trivia night, a band, pool tournaments. It's always a good time

Orchard Street Chop Shop
Amature night

Harvey's Bakery
Cheap and awesome breakfasts aimed at the college crowed

The Brick House
Displays local art work and is often having concerts upstairs

Dos Amigos
The best (and cheapest) burritos around!
