Hanover Reviews

19 reviews
All Categories
Hanover is a very educated community and generally a liberal town. One of the downsides is that it can sometimes be very exclusive. It is a beautiful place to live with gorgeous buildings and architecture, one of the downsides of living in Hanover is the lack of entertainment and isolation due to its location (far away from major cities).
Review Hanover
Not many places to eat, but there are usually events going on with the college. The town is high end-neighborhoods with low crime.
It's a nice town. A little town and gown at times, but having a college in your backyard offers more benefits than drawbacks.
