On behalf of the Greater Dover Chamber of Commerce, welcome to our community!
Dover has been earning recognition as a dynamic city that has it all: thriving businesses, an expanding cultural scene, a wide selection of dining establishments, a notable history, a strong sense of community, and beautiful scenery.
The Garrison City’s strong, active business community and stable economy make it a popular choice for setting down roots and doing business. The area’s highly trained yet affordable employee base, combined with a solid infrastructure and a full complement of transportation options—highway, rail, air, and port—make the greater Dover area very attractive to existing businesses, as well as to new and relocating businesses. The City’s waterfront district is currently undergoing an intense beautification and revitalization effort that will only add to the quality of life.
Housing in Dover reflects a wide architectural influence. New neighborhoods are planned with careful consideration of preserving nature while still allowing for quality homes. Residents and visitors alike enjoy the city’s parks, trails, and outdoor activities. For example, the self-guided historic walking tours lead to the renowned Woodman Institute Museum and other historically relevant locations that underscore the significance of New Hampshire’s first permanent settlement.
The Dover public school system includes a modern high school with an outstanding technology center, a state-of-the-art middle school, and three elementary schools. Also, the Dover area is home to a number of fine private schools, a performing and fine arts Charter school, and an adult learning center.
This New Hampshire Main Street community offers exceptional shopping and dining opportunities—and with no sales tax in New Hampshire, shopping dollars go so much farther. Dover’s tree-lined downtown is brimming with quaint shops, boutiques, and restaurants of all types.
Dover’s cultural scene is strengthened by fine art and craft galleries, a variety of music venues (including the Rotary Arts Pavilion in Henry Law Park), the Bell Center for Music and the Arts, and the Garrison Players theater group.
The Greater Dover Chamber of Commerce presents a number of community events throughout the year, including the award- winning Cochecho Arts Festival. This free, outdoor, summer-long family concert series features an array of acclaimed entertainers and comprises the Tuesday Children’s Series, the Thursday Luncheon Concert Series, and the Friday Evening Concert Series. Apple Harvest Day, held on the first Saturday in October, draws more than 25,000 people to downtown Dover to enjoy more than 120 hand crafters, children’s activities and games, food, and more.
We hope that you enjoy your visit!
