Discover Hanover 2024 is Out Now!

The 2024 edition of Discover Hanover Magazine is out now! We are excited to have a new look and logo for out 16th year of publication and are excited for what is to come for Hanover’s tourism brand. We hope this with this new look, we will attract more readers than ever before and highlight Hanover as more than just a hub for manufacturing, but a destination for all groups and cultures. Hanover, Pennsylvania has something for everyone from the foodie to the beer aficionado, to historians, and more!

A major catalyst for reworking the brand’s design was to create cohesion with York County and Explore York. Discover Hanover is a proud recipient of the York County Tourism Grant for Discover Hanover 2024 and we wanted our look to emphasize Hanover’s place in York County!

The physical copies are out and can be found at various high traffic locations such as hotel lobbies, rest stops, real estate offices, and out digital copy can be found at discoverhanoverpa.org/digital-edition/.

“I am very excited to be part of 2024’s Discover Hanover Magazine as Editor-in-Chief! Not only is this my first year with the Hanover Area Chamber of Commerce, but Discover Hanover Magazine has a brand new look for its 16th year of publication!

Growing up, I lived west of Gettysburg and Hanover was a frequent destination for my friends, family, and myself! It was a welcome getaway from the vast agricultural landscape and battlefields of Gettysburg I had grown accustomed to. Hanover’s variety of restaurants, activities, and shopping kept us coming back, and as I grew over the last three decades, so has Hanover!

The goal of this year’s Discover Hanover Magazine was to really highlight how far Hanover has come! While we will always recognize Hanover as a manufacturing town booming with commerce and prosperity, we also turn our eyes to the future and realize just how much this South-Central PA community has grown.

In the 16th edition of Discover Hanover Magazine, you will see an array of beautiful imagery that captures the spirit of the Greater Hanover area. I would like to thank all of our local businesses who allowed us to come and take photographs and make this edition of Discover Hanover Magazine the best one yet!

I hope you enjoy Discover Hanover Magazine 2024 as much as I enjoyed creating it! 

Cheers!”
