10 Reasons to Visit Hersheypark this Summer + Enter to win 4 Tickets to Hersheypark!
We are huge fans of Hersheypark. It really is The Sweetest Place on Earth. We moved to Pennsylvania a few years back and one of the biggest items on our bucket list was definitely Hersheypark. I’m so glad we got to cross it off because ever since we did we have become huge fans. Before visiting we didn’t know what to expect but let’s face it do we need any more convincing than the main reason which is Chocolate? That being said this park is so much more than chocolate. I was surprised, to be honest at how much there is to do, eat and see at this park. It really has it all. Although I can give you more than 10 Reasons to Visit Hersheypark this summer.
1. The Chocolate
Ok, I had to start with the Chocolate because hello! But how could anyone turn down the idea of visiting a place dedicated to chocolate?! From the ride names to the characters to the actual food. This really is a sweet place to visit. While here make sure and check out The Chocolatier, a restaurant dedicated to past and present pieces from the Hersheypark® ride collection, one-of-a-kind views of neighboring attractions, and a second-story patio and bar. Limited-time seasonal food and drink offerings are available at this location!
