A trip to Hershey Park was the highlight of our summer vacation! They had so much to do for everyone in the family, and we all had a great day! The roller coasters were terrific (10 at last count!), and the water rides were a big hit since it was a hot day. This year they've added "The Boardwalk at Hershey Park," which looks to be a big water area within the park. One of the favorities was the roller coaster that goes up above the water area below, and you can shoot at the riders with water guns and cannons. Another favorite was the Hershey Kiss Tower-a very mild ride that takes you high up in the air, and slowly rotates, giving a complete view of the park. The best, though, was the Hershey Factory Works tour! It was the perfect way to end our day-just sitting and relaxing in a calm, chocolate-scented environment! I want to go back and check out the spa services offered at Spa at Hotel Hershey-the chocolate fondue wrap treatment sounds like heaven!
Yes, Hershey Park is a great trip for the whole family. Definitely check out the Spa at the Hotel Hershey on your next visit (thechocolatespa.com). It's my favorite spa. As with other nice spas, the services are a bit pricey, but unlike other spas, you can enjoy the extra features of the spa (the pool, whirlpool, sauna, and steam room) ALL DAY, before and after your treatment. You can just lounge around in the robe and slippers they provide, sipping on the complimentary Hershey's Hot Chocolate (or coffe and tea) and munching on the Hershey kisses, muffins, breads, and fruits they provide. Also consider the Hershey Gardens (hersheygardens.com). They have a Children's Garden that my kids love and a Butterfly House too. And it's FREE for mother's on Mother's Day.
