Dancing With Dover
Sure you can go out dancing in Dover. Not that the place is known as a dance capital of anything, much less the world, but we just thought that had a nice ring to it.
Dover's got more scenery than a painting. And that's saying a lot because in a painting you can cram as much onto the canvas as your imagination will allow. In fact the place is so notable for its beauty there's a collection of antique postcards to prove it.
Dover was and is in possession of a number of noteworthy residents, including mathematician Kenneth Appel. He recommends you do the numbers. If the solution doesn't include you making Dover your new home, go back and check your work.

Dover's Apartment Prices in Recent Days
Your days are numbered. But in a good way, because soon enough you'll be here in Dover with a crazy cool apartment and a great group of Granite State folks to call neighbors. But let's take a look at how much it'll cost you to get acquainted.
Check out our rental and census data tables as well as our other fact sheets for more info about affordability and options for your future new digs. Now get moving on your apartment search by selecting among the rentals you see listed below.
Dover on the Ones and Twos
Why we used a bit of phraseology from the world of dance music we can't tell you, but we do recognize we've now struck upon a theme of dancing with regard to Dover apartments for rent. Any psychologists among you might try taking a stab at unearthing our subconscious passions.
The beauty of the area has been immortalized in a series of postcards we previously made mention of, but that's not the only method that's been tried for locking down the city's sightly presence. Artist Michael Croteau has put brush to canvas in his efforts to portray the city, and to great effect. Take a look.
Originally settled by the indigenous Abenaki, Dover was later discovered by a European of English descent (after all, the region's dubbed New England for a reason) by the name of Martin Pring, but only with the brothers Edward and William Hilton did the town get underway. The brothers' occupation was one of ""fishmonger,"" a title pretty funny sounding to modern ears, perhaps indicative of a fish hoarder or something, but in the 17th century just another way for saying ""I sell seafood.""
Unlike many an American locality, Dover's held its name for nearly 400 years. It was never ""Dove's Grove,"" ""Dover's Ledge,"" or ""Dove Township,"" or anything else vaguely reminiscent of its current name. Just Dover. And to that we give the city the Most Consistent Award.
Having gone well beyond the stock and trade of seafaring creatures, today the city maintains relevancy economically with its light industrial parks and cooperative endeavors between its public and private sectors. On top of all that, they keep it real with a commitment to a high quality of life.
Apart from the keepin' it real part, did that read like something we pilfered from the city's webpage? That's because it is.
Doin' the Deed in Dover
And what would the deed in question be? Well that depends on what gets you up and out the door.
Like recreation? If you're among the 99% of humanity that does, then you'll greatly appreciate the ice arena, indoor pool, outdoor pool, and McConnell Center Fitness Center (two centers in one!) among other facilitators of flexibility. There's even a free dog park, though the powers that be ask that you contribute a small donation to help with upkeep. That's not too much to ask, is it? If it is, we suggest you reassess your community spirit before you move into your new apartment.
The Dover Chamber of Commerce recommends you take in a trip to the Children's Museum of New Hampshire, enjoy Apple Harvest Day, and get a ""bird's eye"" view of the region from the top of Garrison Hill. This is all from their list of ""Ten Fun Things To Do.""
And finally, considering the fact that food is an essential element of any growing, or even non-growing body, we'd be remiss not to suggest some places to find some. Christopher's Third Street Grille has garnered rave reviews for its steak and seafood items drawn from its ""decadent"" menu. But if something less fancy is on your mind - and hopefully later, your plate - Paddy Wagon just may have the gastrointestinal goods you're after. Looks like they do a cheese steak type of thing there too, so bring your moist towelettes.
