The city of Dover is both the capital of Delaware and the county seat of Kent County. Centuries ago, a man named William Penn founded Dover. Penn initially envisioned Dover as a court town. However, Dover was expanded into a full-blown city by the Delaware General Assembly in 1717. The city of Dover would play a pivotal role in the American Revolution; military leader Caesar Rodney called Dover home and used it as his base of operations. Years later, Dover also played a crucial role in the 19th Century Abolitionist Movement. Dover was an Underground Railroad checkpoint for many years and housed a large, anti-slavery Quaker community.
All of this may sound like ancient history. Still, many of the events that molded Dover into the city it is today happened quite recently. Moreover, Dover’s citizens continue to celebrate their city’s history each and every year. Numerous statues and memorials decorate almost every part of town. Annual festivals are held to commemorate Dover’s past. Guests can even find Revolutionary War reenactments if they know where to look.

Convenient to the Met, which does not allow luggage at coat check. Very easy check in and check out process, with lovely people at the front!
This was so cool!!!! Great service, extremely easy to use, and totally affordable! I didn't know where I'd leave my luggage while we explored San Fran, so I easily Googled luggage storage and found this company. At first it was a little odd dropping my bag off at a chocolate store, but the lady at the register was able to immediately pull up my reservation without any problems and then she put a lock on my suitcase and gave me a card to get it back with. She pushed the bag to the back of their storage room and I came back about 6 hours later to pick it up. Great service, I will definitely be using this again when I travel!
Can’t believe I haven’t used this service until now. So easy & convenient. I 100% recommend.
