The Firefly Music Festival is not for everyone, especially for those that find much of the following unappealing: Multiple days of camping, ironic tank-tops, drinking games, Grateful Dead tapestries, dust, drug dealers, bugs, hydration packs, portable toilets, 30-minute treks from camp to the festival grounds, high-waisted shorts, flying glow sticks and bad tanlines. For the rest of us - and there were approximately 80,000 music fans in attendance, according to Billboard - the four-day music festival that took place from Thursday to Sunday in Dover, Del., was an unofficial kickoff to summer celebration that was thrilling and - if we're being honest - draining.

Slot machines and a speedway may be the best-known attractions in Dover, Del. But there's much more to do in the capital of the country's first state. Just about two hours from Baltimore, Dover offers a variety of museums as well as great restaurants and tax-free shopping. Admission to most of the museums is free. Shopping includes a mall with more than 100 stores as well as outlet centers on the way to Dover. The city is home to Dover Air Force Base. Base personnel have provided military air support since World War II as well as humanitarian aid in crises as diverse as the evacuation of Americans from Iran in 1978 to the cleanup of the Exxon Valdez oil spill.

DOVER, Del. - Jeff Gordon was like a man on a carousel, going round and round seemingly without a care. He led all but 19 laps of the MBNA Platinum 400 yesterday, building a lead that stretched over more than a half-mile before beating Steve Park to the finish line by .828 of a second. Dale Earnhardt Jr. finished third for his best finish since running second in the Daytona 500 on the day his father, Dale Earnhardt, was killed there. And Ricky Craven, who has been given a second Winston Cup career by owner Cal Wells, finished fourth.
