Disclosure: I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Hershey Entertainment and Resorts. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
Every couple of months I make a trip to New York, it’s a six hour drive with TWO kids and OH my can that trip be challenging! Every trip I long for my parents door step but before that I long for a reprieve, at The Sweetest Place on Earth.
Hershey, PA is pretty much the exact middle point between my house in VA and my parents house in NY. So every single time I drive to NY I stop in Hershey, PA for nice little break from driving and if some fresh Hershey Chocolate makes it into my hands then so be it!
This Summer we plan to meet my family in Hershey so that we can have a fun weekend together without one of us having to drive six hours in one direction! We’re going so we can visit Hersheypark, it has 65 rides and attractions!
And you can even meet your favorite candy! For me it’s Reese’s!
For me though I really love Chocolate World and going to the store after where you can get pretty much any Hershey candy you love in pretty much any size and quantity.
I was surprised to find out that Hershey isn’t just about Hersheypark. There is SO much more to Hershey. It has a huge arena where all sorts of events happen. My sisters where just there for a huge Cheerleading competition. It was actually where they were as Kyla was being born! So for them Hershey will always be the place they were when they found out Kyla was born, how cool is that? The Sweetest Place on Earth for the Sweetest News!
Hershey also boasts a Zoo, Hershey Camping Resort and The Hotel Hershey which has a Chocolate Spa! It’s the perfect destination for everyone in your family. You can stay at the Camping resort to appease Dad’s idea of a vacation but still get the kids excited with Hersheypark and Mom more than willing to go with a day trip to the Chocolate Spa.
Here is the list of all the fun events going on in Hershey this summer, plan your vacation around your favorite one and enjoy all that Hershey has to offer!
If my sister has anything to say about it we’ll be planning our trip to Hershey when One Direction will be there. Thinking of all there is too do in Hershey makes me so excited to meet my family there this summer, I love that my kids will grow up going there!
