With summer weather creeping into Hanover, one of our favorite activities for the end of spring term is swimming! Hanover and the Upper Valley boast incredible lush landscapes and by the end of spring term, most of the trees and flowers are in full bloom. One of the best ways to take in the breathtaking views of New Hampshire is to spend time outside, swimming. 

Swimming has been apart of Dartmouth culture ever since the implementation of the 50-yard swim test. This test is a graduation requirement and most students complete it before heading out on their First-Year Trip. However, if you don't know how to swim there's no need to worry! The College offers swimming lessons that students can elect to take if they want some extra practice.

Regardless of your swimming ability, spending time exploring the Upper Valley is a memorable part of anyone's Dartmouth experience. Read on to discover the best places to take an (extended) study break and get outside!
