The East Coast has been hit with a lot of rain these past few weekends, and this coming weekend will be no exception. However, we have been really fortunate in getting out to enjoy some time during our Road Trip Weekends, at least a day or two with sunshine allowing for lots of fun adventures.
Our latest road trip lead us to Hershey, PA. The family and I drove out later in the afternoon on a Friday, about a 3-hour drive from NYC.
When we arrived to Hershey there was still some sunlight left to enjoy and so we decided to make an impromptu stop in Hershey’s Chocolate World. I hadn’t researched it, or really even heard about it, so this was a complete mystery to us – but not anymore. The kids will agree, making that stop was one of the best decisions of the weekend.
Hershey’s Chocolate World has a great selection of activities around, what else? Hershey’s chocolate!
There are several admission packages you can choose from to include either some or all of the various attractions offered there. From the Hershey’s Really Big 3-D Show to the Hershey’s Dessert Creation Studio to the Hershey’s Chocolate Tasting Adventure, just to name a few.
The entire family really loved creating our own candy bar. We each chose different ones. Guests have selections such as white, milk, or dark chocolate as well as a variation of fillings, like nuts, cookie crumbs, and chocolate chips, with or without sprinkles on top.
Chocolate World also has a few bakery stops where you can buy freshly baked chocolate chip cookies, brownies, cup cakes – you name it, they’ve got it. And we got to enjoy taking a few pics with some Hershey’s characters and browsing through their gift shops.
I honestly can’t think of a more fun way to kick-off our weekend at Hershey. Though I don’t have much of a sweet tooth (my own chocolate bar creation sits waiting for me to take the first bite still), I did become giddy with excitement to be surrounded by so much sweet fun. Till this day, kids are talking about Chocolate World, our unexpected family-fun adventure.
