Dover is the capital and second-largest city in the U.S. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Annmarie Garden and Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Historical Park. Get some historical perspective at Concord Point Lighthouse and Delaware Agricultural Museum and Village. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Dover: Sotterley Historic Plantation (in Hollywood), 1879 Hooper Strait Lighthouse (in St. Michaels) and Choptank River Lighthouse (in Cambridge). There's lots more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Fort Miles Historic Area at Cape Henlopen State Park, see the interesting displays at Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art, steep yourself in history at Historic Odessa Foundation, and take an in-depth tour of Delaware State Police Museum and Education Center.

In August, daily temperatures in Dover can reach 83°F, while at night they dip to 66°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
