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
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).
