Thinking about putting Dover as our BOP after a remote. Can someone give me a rundown of the base and the area? Is a big city-type area or more country? We are small-town and looking to get away from the big hustle and bustle of the cities and the accompaning traffics that goes with it.

How is the job outlook for active duty spouses? Are the BX and commissary nice?

Is there nice comradry on and off base between military and local citizens?

Any info you have would be much appreciated!!
