Ratings and reviews of Dover




Kate (researched this town Within the last 5 years and is considering moving here):

"Contemplating a Move"

As a transplanted NYer to the desert Southwest, I can't tell you how tired I am of the desert, especially the hot summers and lack of culture. We live a three hour drive from Phoenix, six hours from LA and two from Las Vegas and feel very land locked. We miss the green, the four seasons, plays and music scene, especially being an artist and educator, while my husband is a musician and audio/video engineer. The sun shines here 360 days a year and the summer temps 118+. It does get old.

I have many questions about Dover and other areas of Delaware nearby as we've only driven through there 15 years ago. Good health care availability; cultural arts (art galleries, exhibits, art groups, music, theatre); weather (hurricanes) are the top of the list. Then housing prices, neighborhoods to look at. One question I do have is this: With the Dover Air Force base there, are jets continually flying overhead? I read on one website that there was a high crime rate. I look forward to any and all comments. Thanks, Kate
