On the western portion of north New York lies the little town of Hanover. Depending on the kind of trip you are looking for, there are a number of hotels, motels, and campgrounds in the surrounding area. Whether you're looking for a weekend getaway at a dainty spa or a real, nitty-gritty camping excursion, the Town of Hanover has what you are looking for! The Town of Hanover has a rich history, and has many activities to offer. Good news for your furry friends - the Town of Hanover has a number of hotels, inns, and cabins that are dog-friendly! One of Hanover's most popular attractions is the Hanover Town Beach.
Hanover Town Beach lies on the upper eastern corner of Lake Erie. This beach is sandy and blue, and gives visitors a number of opportunities to enjoy the natural, laidback environment throughout the summer months. Make sure you bring appropriate shoes, as the terrain around Lake Erie tends to get a bit rough. Activities include swimming on the shores of Lake Erie, grilling burgers and hotdogs on the charcoal grills with family and friends under the available pavilions, picnicking on the beach, and monkey-ing around the playground area.
Kayak rentals are also available for those willing to pay a small rental fee. If that didn't catch your interest, there are a number of easy walking/hiking trails along the beach and down along the pier. And since this sandy sanctuary faces west, the sun sets right over the water. What more could you ask for!?
This beach is family friendly, including a full-time life guard, in addition to handicap accessible areas. Gather up the gang, because this beach is freely available to the public, and includes public parking! However, keep in mind that parking may be limited depending on the time of year and time of day you are visiting!
Remember, if you bring your canine companion along, be mindful of others enjoying the area! There are a number of designated garbage receptacles around the beach, so be sure to cleanup after your dog, and bring items to keep your pup feeling cool and safe!
