More About Hershey, Pennslvania

Take a trip to:

Hershey, Pennsylvania

This oh-so-sweet Pennsylvania locale is the birthplace of the Hershey’s chocolate company. Its Hersheypark, originally created as “leisure grounds” for employees of Hershey’s Chocolate Factory, is now a major theme park that will be opening its new Hershey’s Chocolatetown area in summer 2020. The $150-million addition will include the largest themed restaurant in Hershey, an ice cream parlor with “personal ice creamologists,” and the Candymonium, which will be the tallest, fastest, and longest rollercoaster at the park.

When you’ve had enough thrills, take things down a notch by strolling through ZooAmerica, which spotlights animals and plants native to North America, and Hershey Gardens, where the Children’s Garden features water misters shaped like Hershey’s Kisses and the Butterfly Atrium houses dozens of rare butterflies. Hershey Trolley Works offers a Historical Trolley Tour of the area that includes, not surprisingly, chocolate samples. You can also invent the concoction of your dreams at Hershey’s Create Your Own Candy Bar attraction.
