The Sweetest Place on Earth

Hershey, Pennsylvania is a town built entirely on chocolate--purposely. Milton Hershey developed this town for his chocolate empire and tourism. Over 100 years later, this is still the primary purpose of Hershey.

It's called the "Sweetest Place on Earth" and may be--the streetlights are in the shape of Hershey Kisses and while walking anywhere in the town or nearby, you can always smell the aroma of chocolate.

There are lots of attractions here--for families, mostly. HersheyPark, Zoo America, Hershey's Chocolate World, Hershey Gardens, the Hotel Hershey, Hershey Arena, the Hershey Outlets, the Hershey Museum...as you can tell from this list alone, it really does only cater to tourists:))

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Lots to do if you're a visitor/tourist
  • Cons:Not that much to do if you've been there a couple times already
  • In a nutshell:See it! This place will make you happy:)

    Hershey might seem deliciously enticing now Katey but just wait until you get to Vienna. The city is stunning and the chocolate is heavenly. My favourite place AND my favourite weakness - an unbeatable combination! Very jealous!!

    How do I get to Hershey? Is Hershey Highway the fastest way?

    When we lived in PA we took our kids to Chocolate World several times a year and topped the day off with a hot fudge sundae. I would love one now. Great tips - definitely a top 5 in the making.

    Haven't been to Hershey since I was a kid! That hotel sounds fabulous! I could use a day lounging at a chocolate spa...
