Hanover Township Reviews
Rating 3.48 out of 5 31 reviews
It’s a nice place to live but it has its issues like all other places. The schools are good but the teenager population is typical middle class kids who troll around and cause trouble. 22 runs right through the center of the township so the noise is constant
Hanover is a weird town every town outside of here and all other schools communicate with eachother and are intertwined while Hanover seems more secluded.
when I needed to find a new home I looked in Hanover township. I found that it was very quiet and family-friendly. I found my home in a quiet area with lots of children so my kids could play. the schools are okay if you need to transfer its a little hard.overall its a great place
This is a pretty boring town. There is not as much crime as Wilkes Barre and I would consider it safe. You might get some nice neighbors or some bad ones. The housing is cheap but the taxes are pretty high. There are some nearby stores (Gerrity's) although the Walmart and Sam's Club are a bit farther than I wish they were.
They are on top of things.
Twice during the summer months over the past 3 years there has been a spree of home robberies taking items from open garages or open back doors. Both times the people were caught.
We live in a suburban area surrounded by 5+ strong colleges/universities. In 1-2 hours we can access Philadelphia, New York, or NJ beaches.
Police and fire dept very visible; township in tuned to citizens needs
I would move into the Area again
The quality of transportation in my area can be described as a hassle. When it comes to obtaining a ride from the local taxi services in the Bethlehem and Allentown area it can become quite time consuming. The taxi services are limited and take 20 minutes and longer to come to your destination. Although the wait will already have costumers frustrated, unfortunately it can get worse, with rude drivers or ones that speak broken English making it hard to communicate, "speed racers", or even drivers with bad hygiene; making the ride most uncomfortable. Traffic jams happen daily but can be monitored and timed for ones convenience. The most traffic arrives during school hours and the common 9am-5pm job hours, major roads are ones you try to venture away from Monday through Friday, taking back roads will save you the most time. Since where i reside at isn't considered a major city like New York, congested areas don't really arise, but still parking availability will always be a hassle in my eyes regardless of where one resides.
The weather in Pennsylvania ranges widely over the 4 seasons. Summer can be brutally hot, causing major heat waves that last several days or weeks, the moth of July can be the worst.Spring rains a lot but the temperature is calming to many. Fall is nice in the beginning because its still warm out with just a light enough breeze for a jacket, however as the months venture in it can become cold and even start to snow as early as October. Pennsylvania has seen some pretty bad snow storms over the past 30 years. Winter can be brutal with snow storms and major ice build ups over major roads, making traveling for the holidays hard and depressing. Students such as myself dwell the winter weather because it makes it hard to get to classes if not cancelled. Depending on where you live in Pennsylvania certain city's streets don't get cleaned as well as others. Gloves, boots, coats, and scarves are essentials for the winter.
Bethlehem is known for Musikfest and Steel Stacks.
I could not see myself living her for my whole life.
There are only two resturants wiith little buisness.
Winter can be anywhere from mild to hard and summer can sometimes be brutally hot or mild. There are never natural disasters in this area and the weather is never a huge problem.
There is a very large variety of foods and they are all very high quality and good tasting.
