If I'm not mistaken Leeds Castle is in England

Yes it is, and so is Dover Castle. :))

I have no idea what to do in Dover, Delaware, sorry.

Is Dover castle more like a brick fort?

RE: RE: What should not be missed in Dover

by Mariajoy

There's loads of info about it here - looks like it was originally an Anglo-Saxon fort:

Dover, DE is in Kent County but I have yet to see any castles here in my time. I must be blind.

In Dover, DE, try the Air Force Museum at Dover AFB. Take a visit of the State Capitol and the Green. Shop at the little stores on Loockerman Street. Go to Rehoboth or Dewey Beach. Check out the casino and race track at Dover Downs. Take a side trip to Annapolis or Newark. Look at my Dover page for more tips!

Travel Tips for Dover

Dover's only brewery - Fordham

by Ewingjr98

According to legend, Fordham Brewery was started in 1703 when Queen Anne of England appointed Benjamin Fordham to start a brewery in the city of Annapolis in the New World.

Fordham Brewery was restarted in historic Annapolis in 1995 at Rams Head Tavern. In 2000 Fordham expanded to a second, larger brewery in Alexandria, VA. In 2003, Fordham moved all of its operations to a 15,000 annual barrel capacity plant in Dover, Delaware, just north of Dover Air Force Base, across the street from First State Billiards.


Fordham's Beers:

Name: Copperhead Ale
Style: Altbier
Alcohol by Volume: 4.7%
Original Gravity: 12.2 ° Plato
30 IBUs
Fordham's flagship beer is our interpretation of the Düsseldorf style Altbier. Its deep copper hue is a result of the caramelized malted barley used. Copperhead is significantly hopped to provide its signature balanced flavor this ale is known for.


Name: Light Lager
Style: Lager (German Style)
Alcohol by Volume: 3.8%
Original Gravity: 10.0° Plato
13.5 IBUs
This crisp light lager is low on calories but big on taste. The lighter grains selected for this brew allow for plenty of flavor with less residual sugar. It's the perfect beer for when you want "real" beer taste with fewer calories.


Name: Helles Lager
Style: Helles
Alcohol by Volume: 5.1%
Original Gravity: 12.5° Plato
22.5 IBUs
This Bavarian style lager is brewed with four different German grains to produce a deep golden color and intricate flavor profile. Three hop varieties are used to help craft the subtle bitterness. The result is a clean and refreshing lager we know you'll enjoy. Voted "Best Local Lager" by Baltimore Magazine. It is also available at area liquor stores in 12 ounce bottles. If you don't see it, ask for it!


Name: Tavern Ale
Style: American Pale Ale
Alcohol by Volume: 5.5%
Original Gravity: 12.5° Plato
60 IBUs
This American Style Pale Ale has an ample amount of malt flavor to compliment its strong hop profile. It's cold conditioned on fresh whole leaf Cascade hops, creating an enjoyable citrus-like aroma.

One of the commodities they...

by Kentbein

One of the commodities they required, and could not have settled this nation without, was gunpowder. Wild boars, bears and hostile neighbors were typically uncooperative when asked to postpone an attack until a new supply of gunpowder arrived by ship. The attackers generally expressed their answer by slicing the person’s head off. Such are the ways of frontier settlement. It’s a tough life settling new frontiers.

Delaware State University

by Ewingjr98

Delaware State University is a historically back university with under 4,000 undergraduate students and about 350 graduate students. The school offers 64 undergraduate degrees and 21 graduate degrees.

Delaware State was established in 1891 as the State College for Colored Students. The school was renamed Delaware State College in 1947 then Delaware State University in 1993.

Oddly enough, the school is located at the north end of Dover near the NASCAR track. The campus covers 400 acres and has seen lots of new development lately. Today there are 30 campus buildings, plus satellite campuses in Wilmington and Georgetown. Their athletic teams compete at NCAA Division I-AA in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference. In 2007 they won their division, competed in the Division I Football Championship Subdivision playoffs, and were quickly trounced by their upstate rivals 44-7 in the first meeting ever between these schools.

The Dover legislation has made it illegal in the State of Delaware to have your tongue split by anyone other than a licensed, practicing doctor.

Tongue-splitting is a new fad for those who like tattooes and body-piercings. It involves cutting the tongue in the center from the tip backward about one-third the length of the tongue. This gives the tongue a unique serpent (forked) look that some people find attractive.

If you want this procedure in Delaware, then don't go to your local tatoo parlor but go see your doctor from now on.

Lebanon Landing

by Ewingjr98

This is a nice quiet spot along the St. Jones River for launching boats, fishing, picnicking, or just relaxing with a good book. The area has parking for about 5 cars, a few picnic tables, plus a pier and a boat launching ramp. You could canoe or kayak here if you bring your own boat. I used to come here occasionally on my lunch break to enjoy a sunny day.

It is located just south of Route 10 at 1400 Sorghum Mill Rd, Dover. This is a tiny little spot with no restrooms, no attendant, and no shops or restaurants within about 1/2 mile.
