Stay at our hotels in Dover, Delaware, to explore the colonial history of the First State. Explore the historic Green, the city's epicenter since the American Revolutionary War, and enjoy a heady local brew in the city's taverns, where revolutionaries plotted the country's future in 1776.
Our hotels in Dover are near the city's many free museums and historic buildings. The 18th-century Old State House, with its simple colonial legislative chambers, presides over the Green public square. The Green was a rallying point for soldiers fighting for independence in the Revolutionary War. Browse early American furniture and paintings depicting Delaware history at the Biggs Museum of American Art. In farmland south of the city, guides in period costume welcome you to the John Dickinson Plantation, home of an influential colonial advocate for American Independence. On a ramble through the St. Jones Reserve wetlands, a short drive from our Dover hotels, you'll spot wild turkeys and families of quail nesting among the reeds and grasses.
A working Amish community just outside Dover has an array of markets and general stores stocked with handmade quilts, fresh local produce and jars of sour pickles and homemade jams. Guests of our Dover hotels can shop and dine in the boutiques and affordable bistros near the town Green. The shops and galleries offer everything from hand-dipped candles to delicate jewelry and stained glass. Neighborhood eateries tempt with hearty pizza and calzones, while wood-beamed taverns beckon with a warm glow. The draught of choice is Fordham Copperhead Ale, brewed right here in Dover.
Stay at one of our Holiday Inn® Dover hotels in May for the walking tours and fairs in and around the Green during Dover Days, or in September when race fans cheer on NASCAR's top drivers at the Dover International Speedway.
