An Affordable Family Vacation
Hershey Pennsylvania is known for being the sweetest place on earth. Home to the American chocolate bar, this town has everything, a chocolate factory, kisses street lamps, a world-class amusement and much more.
Heading to Hershey again for a weekend trip with the family. We've been twice with our twins who are now 8. Love the park. The water park area is OK, not great, because for the younger kids you have to wait in line just to get into the wading pool/splash pad area and then they time you and blow a horn after only like 15 minutes and you have to get out so the next group can go in. Very dissapointed with that 3 yrs ago - hopefully they've changed it. The town of Hershey has nothing really other than the park, a garden (haven't been), and a concert/stadium place. The smaller hotels/motels are pretty bad for the price. We're staying at the Hershey Lodge this time since it's just for a night.
We have been to Hershey several times. The kids love the park and learning about how their favorite candy is made. While there, we also spend time exploring Lancaster county, known for the Amish. There is great shopping in these areas, along with some wonderful resturants. A trip our family enjoyed. Mary Rabbi
