Very good schools in the area, family friendly. Nightlife is nonexistent. Not as diverse as other towns in New Hampshire
Review Hanover
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).
Not many places to eat, but there are usually events going on with the college. The town is high end-neighborhoods with low crime.
