Dover (New Hampshire)

Dover is a city in New Hampshire, United States. Settled in 1623, it pre-dates the founding of America and is the 7th oldest city in the country.

Get in

By car

Dover is located off of the Spaulding Turnpike (Route 16), and is about 10 minutes from I-95, which connects to Maine and Massachusetts.

By train

Dover's train station is located in the center of downtown, at the intersection of Third Street and Chestnut Street, next to St. Mary's church. Amtrak's Downeaster connects Dover to Boston's North Station and Portland, Maine, along with several towns in between. During the summer, the Downeaster makes an additional stop at Old Orchard Beach. This comes in handy on summer weekends, when I-95 and US-1 are both bumper to bumper with vacation traffic.

Eat

Dover divides its restaurant 'areas' mainly into two distinct locations. In north Dover, off Spaulding Tpke's exit 9, are a plethora of chain restaurants. Landing in this area you will find Chili's, Uno's, Applebee's, Subway, McDonalds, Wendy's, and Amato's (although the latter is technically Somersworth). A short drive south on Central Avenue will bring you to the old mill area of the City. This is an area of more the one-of-a-kind custom restaurants. Each has a unique style and atmosphere that covers a very wide variety and one of them is sure to please your taste for the evening. In this area the street addresses range from 286 Central Ave up into the 300's.
