Looking To Move To Hanover?
HANOVER is an unincorporated community in northwestern Anne Arundel County and eastern Howard County in Maryland. This area is attractive because of its newer housing inventory and convenience to DC, Baltimore, and Annapolis. At the heart of the place is Arundel Mills, a famous shopping center with plenty of entertainment, stores, and food places. Many homes around the Arundel Mills mall were built within the past decade, so they have floor plans that appeal to today's home buyers and renters.
Hanover is conveniently located near the Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI), or BWI. This international commercial airport serves the Baltimore-Washington Metropolitan Area. It is named after Thurgood Marshall, a Baltimore native and the first African American to serve on the United States Supreme Court. The airport has been a backdrop in numerous films, including The Silence of the Lambs, Goldfinger, Broadcast News, and Twelve Monkeys.
For much of the 1990s, BWI was a major hub for US Airways, but that airline's financial difficulties in the wake of the dot-com bust and the September 11 attacks forced it to significantly reduce its presence at the airport. The airport has been a major haven for low-cost flights in the Baltimore/Washington Metropolitan Area since the arrival of Southwest Airlines in September 1993, and in the early 2000s Southwest significantly increased its operations there. Southwest is now BWI's largest carrier, accounting for about 52.5% of passengers in 2007. The other major airlines with a significant presence at the airport are AirTran (11.82%), Delta Air Lines (6.56%), United Airlines (6.44%), and US Airways (6.40%).
In late 2008, Health Magazine named BWI the nation's second healthiest airport.
