What began as a town that chocolate built has become a resort destination featuring the latest and greatest in family entertainment. Experience Hershey’s world-class theme park with more than 60 thrilling rides and attractions, relax in the Chocolate Spa, explore a botanical garden for children, see over 200 fascinating animals from 75 North American species at ZOOAMERICA, and tour a museum that tells the many stories behind the name Hershey.

Known as the “cleanest and greenest” destination in America, Hershey is the perfect place to get away from it all with a calendar packed full of concerts, Broadway shows, events, and activities. Learn how chocolate is made on Hershey’s Great American Chocolate Tour and even help operate an actual Hershey’s Kisses chocolates packaging line at Hershey’s Factory Works. If you love shopping, you’ll find everything from chocolate and outlet stores, to fine jewelry and souvenirs. Whether golf is your passion or just a leisurely pastime, Hershey features a variety of courses for all ages and levels of play.

Hershey’s location is ideal for exciting day trips to the many cultural, historical, educational, and entertainment attractions in nearby Harrisburg, Gettysburg, and Lancaster. If you’ve never been there, you owe it to yourself to visit Lancaster in the heart of Pennsylvania. It’s just 30 minutes from Hershey, but it’s a world apart. In a land of farms and fields, the Amish still live without electricity and use mule teams to plow some of the most beautiful and productive farmland in America. Lancaster is also home to Dutch Wonderland Family Entertainment Complex.

Just 45 minutes south of Hershey is the hallowed ground of Gettysburg National Military Park, site of the Civil War’s most decisive battle. Fascinating tours, exhibits, special events, and programs bring history to life for all visitors, young and old.
