West Manheim Township Reviews

We get tourism, but it's not for Hanover- it's for Gettysburg, which is 15 miles/30 minutes away from Hanover. Our local hotels receive a lot of overflow from Gettysburg tourists, so they *might* tour the snack food factories in town such as Snyder's of Hanover or Utz Quality Foods, as well, the historical march to Gettysburg goes through Hanover. We are smack-dab in the middle of several tourist locations, including Harrisburg, PA, Baltimore, MD, and Lancaster Amish Country, PA, so we do make a nice resting spot for people traveling through.

The different types of restaurants vary from your average fast food restaurant such as McDonald's and Burger King, to casual dining restaurants such as Panera Bread and Olive Garden. The food tends to be pretty good. Service is always nice and speedy.
Hanover has many local businesses that bring money into the town and keep it growing, such as Snyder's of Hanover, Utz Quality Snacks, Hanover Foods Corporation, Vulcan Materials Quarry, R H Shepard and many others. I work at my local Holiday Inn Express and it is staggering to see how much business is brought to Hanover through local companies such as the ones mentioned above.
