Things To Do In Dover


Select Local Merchants

The Fordham & Old Dominion story started in 1989 when Jerry Bailey followed his passion for experimental brews by opening Old Dominion, which quickly gathered a loyal local following. In 1995, Bill Muehlhauser opened Fordham, and the two breweries joined forces 12 years later. Today, the company—led by Muehlhauser—remains dedicated to artfully crafted ales, lagers, and sodas with unique flavor profiles. These brews include the Double D IPA with guava and mango aromas as well as the Baltic porter, which combines the flavors of licorice and toffee with a touch of rye.

Dover Par’s public full-size greens invite putters and drivers of all ages to play 18 holes and practice swings in the batting cages or on the range. The relaxed par-three course caters especially to beginner or medium-level golfers. Before tackling the links, feel free to practice knocking down satellites or lecturing caddies on the full-length driving range. Meanwhile two-sport stars can swing lumber or aluminum in the newly renovated batting area, where all-new pitching machines, balls, and bats lend a modern touch to each at-bat and batting cages prevent nearby mascots from trying to hug you midswing. Both softball sluggers and baseball champs can step up to the plate.
