Hanover is blanketed in a quiet charm throughout its pleasant streets. Families can grab an ice cream cone after exploring some of the town’s great parks during the summer, and date nights have never been easier than with the plethora of options all offered right in town. Between growing modern options and locally-owned mainstays of business, this area runs the gamut on eateries, fine dining, and shopping. Hanover is home to just under 15,000 people and sustains its sparse suburban allure through attractive natural scenery and beautiful homes. It’s a cinch to commute to Boston and nearby universities, which are some of the best in the nation. On top of that, Hanover is home to its own industries, such as advertising and marketing, manufacturing, and medical services. From small-town charm to new-and-improved commercial outposts, Hanover has it all.
