Located between Portsmouth and Rochester, Dover is a historic city with a rich past spanning almost four centuries. Dover, also known as the Garrison City, sits in the Seacoast region of New Hampshire, touting a thriving downtown area along the banks of the Cocheco River. In the downtown area, residents enjoy a broad selection of cafes, shops, taverns, and other small businesses housed in beautifully preserved historic buildings.

Outside of downtown, Dover adopts a more suburban character, with tranquil neighborhoods covering most of the landscape. The Dover Transportation Center is a stop on Amtrak’s Downeaster line, offering rail service to Boston and Portland. The University of New Hampshire is just outside of town in neighboring Durham, making Dover a great option for students, faculty, and staff members.
