The Green (Bonus: Miles the Monster)

Dahlings,

This stop is not necessarily lesser known of offbeat, but rather is one of many things to see in this historically significant town that is not as high on vacationer’s lists as other superficial or overrated places. It is a town that, despite my lesser interest in colonial history compared to other eras, I have every intention of returning to someday for more thorough exploration.

I’m talking about America’s First State capital city: Dover, DE.

The one place I found in my all too brief visit was THE GREEN- The Green and S. State St., Dover, DE.

This peaceful park is the setting for many moments in our nation’s history. In the late 1700s, troops gathered here, public meetings were held here, and it was in a tavern facing this green space that the U.S. Constitution was ratified and made Delaware the first state.

Today, concerts are held in this park, people still gather for relaxation, and the square is still surrounded by buildings from the late 1700s.

This area is along the Delaware History Trail, which is one of the first places I intended to visit when I come back to this town.

While you are in the area, you may want to stop at the nearby Dover International Speedway and say hi to MILES THE MONSTER- 1131 N. Dupont Hwy, Dover, DE.

Be sure to say hi. You don’t want to piss him off. For the record, that is an actually, full size car he is holding.

Maybe stand far out of reach and wave instead.

Until next time, dahlings…
