10 Reasons You Should Visit Hershey, PA During The Holidays #HersheyPA #SweetWelcome2015

Disclosure: I received a weekend of press accommodations at various Hershey attractions. Regardless, all opinions are my own.

A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of visiting Hershey, PA.  I remember going there when I was a little girl, but  so many years have passed, that I don’t remember much.  Even though I am an adult, there were times I felt like a little girl all over again.  There is so much magic and fun to experience at every venue in Hershey, PA.

10 Reasons You Should Visit Hershey, PA During The Holidays

Hershey Lodge

      1. Hershey Lodge is simply relaxing and beautiful.  It has such amazing high post-and-beam ceilings, exposed stonework and comfortable furniture, all which provide an inviting and warm atmosphere.  When you’re a guest in this 665 room building, you will have your choice of four amazing restaurants. You’ll never be bored with a plethora of sports activities, three different pools to choose from, as well as mini-golf and more! Hershey Collage
      2. Hershey’s Chocolate World is definitely my kind of fun.  You can learn a bunch about Hershey while riding through a mock factory with singing cows!  Towards the end, you can pose for a quick photo with friends, before getting off the ride to shop! Reindeer
      3. Hersheypark Christmas Candylane has a ton of fun for the whole family!  You can visit with Santa and his reindeer, skate at Rudolph’s Skating Pond, enjoy holiday-themed entertainment and finish up some holiday shopping, all while you enjoy seasonal treats. Dining
      4. Dining at Various Hershey Restaurants is a fast way to please your palate.  Whether you enjoy seafood, soup and salads, need a gluten-free meal or want to satisfy that nagging sweet tooth, you’re in the right place.  Perhaps it was the allure of not having to cook and serve anyone but myself, but I didn’t meet a meal I didn’t love while I was there.

      5. ZooAmerica is one of the best, if not THE best zoo I’ve ever been to.  The animals were well-taken care of, clean, visibly loved and just beautiful, captivating creatures.  I loved every single second of my ZooAmerica tour. It really touched my heart that many of these animals were rescued and rehabilitated by the staff. As we listened to the workers, you could feel their passion and warmth for the animals with every word they spoke. Hotel Hershey
      6. Treat yourself at The Spa at the Hotel Hershey to a fantastic and relaxing pedicure, manicure, massage or the works! Trolley
      7. Take an educational Trolley Ride through Hershey, PA, where you’ll learn how and why Milton S. Hershey was so passionate about giving back.  Of course, you’ll pass by some historic homes, buildings and more, all while munching on some delicious treats from your tour guide.
