There are a number of wonderful accommodation options on the property, from campgrounds to the moderately-priced Hershey Lodge, to the luxurious Hotel Hershey. While we decided not to stay at the park itself, we enjoyed dinner at one of their many fine restaurants: Fire & Grain in the Hershey Lodge.
Fire & Grain is a fun, casual restaurant featuring gathering tables, a fire wall and a full-service bar. Their menu is loaded with re-mastered comfort foods and cocktails perfect dining with your friends.
There's so much to do in this ultra-clean, very well-maintained, and very well-run theme park, making it a great destination for families and friends alike!
Another exciting Hershey destination is the Adventure Park. This family entertainment center is located within minutes of the major Hershey attractions.
Located on 10 acres of beautiful countryside, the park offered Audrey and me a variety of great entertainment. We took advantage of it all, from go-karts, miniature golf, bumper boats, batting cages, video arcade and outdoor laser tag.
A short distance away, Adventure Sports in Hershey has a 20-acre, lighted driving range with 24 practice stations, as well as a sand and chipping area. There's also an Adventure Escape Room available.
After we got our heart pumping and filled our bellies with great food, park treats and chocolate, we wanted to slow it down a bit. We visited the beautiful Hershey Gardens.
Nature is in full bloom year-round at Hershey Gardens. We strolled through the beautiful and sweet-smelling gardens and enjoyed the wonder of hundreds of colorful butterflies.
The seasonal exhibits, gift shop for both souvenirs and garden tools and the Educational & Horticultural Wing really made for a delightful, fulfilling time. Connecting with nature — and each other — at Hershey Gardens made it a great follow-up to the excitement of Hersheypark.
