Hanover is a very family-friendly town. There are always fun weekly farmers markets over the summer and it has very good public schools. Dartmouth College, which is located in Hanover, often has fun events in the arts, etc. that town residents attend.
Very good schools in the area, family friendly. Nightlife is nonexistent. Not as diverse as other towns in New Hampshire
