What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Hanover

there are grocery stores, fast food restaurants, and convenience stores nearby, not very far off the main highway

Restaurant panera fancy super markets we love picnics and hiking and road trips and jungle houses Nd beach days

I think what is unique is that it is an older town with older people and older buildings. It is a bit outdated compared to the surrounding towns.

The amount 0f young families and how close we are to the school. People are for the most part nicee.we are extremely close to all amenities from restaurants to stores.

My neighborhood is quiet and family oriented. I also love how I am close to restaurants and stores and even the schools

I like that it is close to the schools. The grocery stores are also close by as well. Walmart has a great selection of items and their pickup option is amazing
