Dover – Things to do with your Team

Dover is owed some gratitude for the freedom of the United States.  Its role in the Revolutionary War may not be as celebrated as some other cities, but Dover played an important part in promoting the Patriot cause.  The location of Dover made it an ideal choice for the Delaware Assembly to meet and the city’s central square, known as The Green, was the site of many patriotic events.  Through the centuries, Dover has become Delaware’s capital and its second largest city.  Your team will be able to learn about historic Delaware and choose from a multitude of exciting activities during your stay in there.
