Hanover Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 35 photos

Hanover, New Hampshire is the home of Dartmouth College, one of the best colleges in the United States. Hanover is located on the Connecticut River, which serves as the border between New Hampshire and Vermont. Fans of the movie "Animal House" should know that Hanover served as the basis for the town of Faber in the movie. "Animal House" was written by an alumnus of Dartmouth, who loosely based the movie on his college experiences.

    Great tips! I'm going to take a short trip to New England soon. If I have time, I hope to visit the Saint Gaudens National Historic Site.
