Spending Some Time In Hanover

Overview

Located right on the boarder of New Hampshire and Vermont, this town has the best of both worlds. Take a walk around Dartmouth College. You don't need a tour guide, just walk around the perimeter.

I believe when you’re on vacation, a dessert should always follow dinner. And after eating over at Molly’s restaurant on Main Street, we needed a little dessert and we needed to find room for it. Although Molly’s offered a strong variety of desserts, my girlfriend suggested taking a short walk (also to burn off a few of those new calories we just consumed) to Ben n’ Jerry’s. Yes we’ve all had Ben n’ Jerry’s from the grocery store or from the overpriced ice cream shop in the city. I don’t know if it’s because we were in the twin states, but Ben n’ Jerry’s is fresher and more genuine here in Hanover. The factory is about 40 minutes north if you care to get the full experience. Instead, I think a...Read More
