Local Reviews

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 It is a bit outdated compared to the surrounding towns.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

About

Hanover, PA

Overview of Hanover

Cradled on the Maryland-Pennsylvania border in the southeastern portion of the state, the city of Hanover has become a quaint and delightful community for many Pennsylvanians looking to raise a family. This charming borough has seen a recent increase in residents, with a 2011 estimated population of more than 15,000, according to information from the U.S. Census Bureau. With its high quality of life and low crime, it is easy to see why so many Pennsylvanians are finding great Hanover apartments for rent.

Living in Hanover, PA

Hanover's history began in 1727 when an Irish nobleman named John Digges purchased a 10,000-acre tract of land and a small community began to grow. However, Richard McAllister bought a large portion of the tract and the city was originally named after him. It wasn't until 1745 that Michael Tanner, McAllister's German-born friend, suggested the name be named after the German city of Hanover, and the name stuck.

The city had a long disagreement about whether or not it should be in Maryland or Pennsylvania, but after the famous Mason-Dixon duo surveyed the land the verdict came in, and the Keystone State became the winner. Today, the city is home to a close community of residents and the world-famous Snyder's of Hanover pretzel company.

Hanover Attractions and Special Events

Many Hanover residents like to spend their free time at Codorus State Park, a collection of rolling hills settled by Lake Marburg on more than 3,450 acres of land. Popular with sailboaters and motorboaters in the summer, fishers and hikers in the spring and fall, and camping year round, the 26 miles of shoreline here are sure to be a gem in the community for years to come. The park even offers scuba diving along Sinsheim Cove and cross-country skiing, sledding, ice skating, and ice fishing in the winter.
