We loved our time in Hershey, PA! Beyond the park, we stayed in a great hotel – the Hershey Lodge. It’s a fun hotel for families with daily activities and themed-rooms. Here’s a sneak peek of it for now, but I’ll tell you more about it soon!
Any trip to Hershey, PA is not complete without a visit to the Hershey Story, a museum that tells the life of Milton Hershey and the Hershey company. Did you know he started out making caramels – Lancaster – and he once declared bankruptcy and grew the Hershey business single-handedly? It was very well done and a great way to finish our trip to Hershey.
Of course, our time wasn’t really done without a bit of chocolate tasting. We tasted 6 different chocolates from around the world, including some very bitter dark chocolate. We all preferred the Hershey’s milk chocolate the best.
It was just a short drive to Philadelphia – hour & a half – and we are staying right downtown at the Loews Philadelphia – it’s a great location. Take a look at the view from the 33rd floor:
Since we arrived in the early evening, we decided to head out and walk a few blocks of the city. In one short hour, we discovered the Reading Terminal Market – the oldest food market in America – gorgeous architecture, and fun street entertainment. We also took in the show at the Comcast HD Experience in the lobby of the Comcast building. And of course, we took this iconic shot:
We have a big day planned for tomorrow – lots of history to be found, and those iconic Rocky steps!
