With its walkable downtown shopping district, historic architecture, access to mass transit, and tree-filled neighborhoods, Dover's setting is everything you want in a New Jersey town. Located on the Rockaway River roughly 23 miles northwest of Newark and about 30 miles from New York City, Dover is slightly removed from the busy cities but close enough for easy commutes. Those commutes are made even easier with the NJ Transit system and nearby I-80.

While Dover has a variety of corner markets and a terrific downtown area for shopping and dining, the nearby Rockaway Townsquare is a popular indoor mall, featuring popular stores like Macy's and Lord & Taylor. Dover features several parks, including Waterworks Park, located on the river, and Mountain Park, a popular hiking destination. Founded in 1722, Dover is home to several historic sites, including the Historic Dover CNJ Station and the Dover railroad station, first opened in 1848.
