  • Be careful of the only car rental in town, Enterprise on Carlisle Street. They have dubious practices. For example, they give you a car with empty gas, and upon return they charge you full gas. Also, their cars are pre-scratched under the front headlights, so if you decline insurance, they are ready to charge you for alleged “damage” to their cars.

Some of the retail businesses include Wal-Mart Supercenter, The Home Depot, Kohls, Staples, The Bon Ton, and Lowe’s.

A lot of the locals like to frequent the Famous Hot Weiner. They have two locations. One on Dart Drive and one in downtown Hanover off on York Street. Secret chili recipe, good dogs, diner atmosphere.
