Planning a visit to the “sweetest place on earth?” Be sure to check out these Seven Things To Do In Hershey while you are there.
I was invited and hosted by Hershey Entertainment & Resorts Company on a sweet trip to explore what Hershey, PA has to offer. All opinions are my own.
Hershey, PA has so many sweet options for both young and old. If you remember last week’s post, I recapped my visit to Hershey as part of their Sweet Welcome with some ideas on Where To Stay In Hershey and some delicious places to eat in Hershey. So now that I got you settled with all the great accommodation and food options, you need some fun things for you and the family to do, right? Hershey is such a fun family destination with options for young, old and every age in between! Luckily for me and my family, this sweet spot is only about two and a half hours from my home so we try to visit at least once a year.
