Hanover, NH has to be my (and my parents') favourite town of those we visited. Granted, we only spent about 3 hours there but immediately fell in love with Hanover. It is a very charming College town, authentic New England, large enough so that it feels lively but small enough to not get on one's nerves. The reason for all that is Dartmouth College, chartered in 1769, one of the Ivy League Colleges. Visiting Hanover means visiting Dartmouth College.

Hanover means graceful Georgian buildings covered in ivy surround the Green, streets lined with trees (foliage!), wide lawns where students relax, toss footballs or stroll to class. The cultural activities in this town are surprisingly interesting: Hood Museum of Art, Hopkins Center for the Arts (performing arts). Cute shops, cafés and restaurants are to find south of the Green.
