With NASCAR at Dover International Speedway's Monster Mile, harness racing at Dover Downs Hotel and Casino, 10 nationally recognized museums (most of which are free admission!), plus historical attractions galore, it's easy to see why the Capital Region is a great year-round destination.   From family outings to reunions, meetings and conventions, Delaware's Capital Region is a great place to visit, stay and play.  Dover is only 45 minutes north of the Delaware Beaches, 45 minutes south of Wilmington, and two hours or less from Baltimore, Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia.

You'll want to begin your exploration at the Visitors Center on Federal Street where you can sign up for a tour with the First State Heritage Park.  Check out the world's largest cargo plane, stationed at Dover Air Force Base and visit the Air Mobility Command Museum, or explore the beginnings of recorded sound at the Johnson Victrola Museum. It's the perfect time to visit the Biggs Museum of American Art, the John Dickinson Plantation or the Delaware Agricultural Museum -- and don't forget Delaware's newest vineyard, Pizzadili's Vineyards and Winery.   In season, kayak with Return to Nature outfitters, or bring your bike and explore some of the First State's new bike paths. 

Whether you're into gaming, motorsports, history or the great outdoors, you'll find plenty of year-round excitement in Delaware's Capital Region -- come see for yourself.  www.visitdover.com or 800-233-5368.
